Quotes

Professor Leonard Kleinrock: [after entering room 3420 in Boelter Hall] We're now entering a sacred location. It's the location where the internet began. It's a holy place and we've just come back to 1969 when the critical events of the origin began.

A Different Look at the Future
4 January 2017 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

Werner Herzog's exploration of the Internet and the connected world.

My expectation was that this film would explore the development of the Internet and a bit about how it works and has expanded. To an extent, this is accurate. We get a look at the birthplace of the Internet, and we see plenty of stories about the world of computing, especially hacking (both from cyber threats and from trophy-hunters like Kevin Mitnick).

But we go way beyond that. I am disappointed that we don't explore the Internet more, but Herzog makes up for this by exploring other loosely connected ideas. Space travel to Mars, for one. He also talks with people who have an intense sensitivity to electro-magnetic fields. The most bizarre segment involves a family who was apparently attacked over the death of their daughter. Herzog makes the family look a bit crazy, and this isn't helped by the mother's claim that the Internet is the Anti-Christ, a view that clearly demonstrates she is mentally unstable.
