Werner Herzog does not separate documentary from ction; he exploits his sense of dramatisation to document the real world. This time, he explores the connected world, the invisible web that seems to link everything together. From the beginnings of the Internet to frightening premises worthy of science-fiction scenarios, he roves about and interviews, in his otherworldly voice, not only top specialists, but also anonymous individuals, victims of the excesses of the web.
The title promises us “reverie”. Herzog does more than marshal facts: on the basis of a scienti c subject or news item, he has constructed a deeply inspirational metaphysical work.
