In his new movie, “Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World,” filmmaker Werner Herzog takes on the internet and our rapid addiction to it.

Having its world premiere at this month’s Sundance Film Festival, the documentary, according to its synopsis, is “a treasure trove of interviews of strange and beguiling individuals — ranging from Internet pioneers to victims of wireless radiation, whose anecdotes and reflections weave together a complex portrait of our brave new world.”

Would we expect anything different from Herzog, the brilliant mind who brought us docs like “Grizzly Man” and “Encounters at the End of the World”?
