Whenever Werner Herzog says something, you should listen. Don’t just listen because the man speaks pure poetry with an alluring German accent. Listen because he’s usually smart, if a little grumpy. Case in point: He thinks Twitter is stupid.
Most of us sit at computers all day, weaving elaborate yarns about the jobs we would do if we weren't: Storm chaser. Mountain climber. Deep sea diver. And then there are the people who actually do those things, like the 1,000-odd people who live and work in Antarctica.
Acclaimed documentarian Werner Herzog has taken on some pretty remarkable subjects during his 50-year career, ranging from Antarctic scientists to Grizzly Man. His latest film, though, is about something much more familiar: Texting and driving. Yet it's no less intense.
