From One Second To The Next (2013)

In this short film Werner Herzog takes the boring subject and turns it into a heart wrenching look at reality. This 34 minute documentary looks at people who's lives are forever destroyed due to cellphone texting while driving. I personally can't think of a subject that is more lame. However when Herzog gets behind something it can get a tear from the most jaded of viewers. As we all know the cellphone-youth or internet-babies as I like to call them can not wipe their own ass without the companionship of their cellular device. This one shows them for the scum they truly are. Well okay maybe that wasn't Herzog's exact message but thats how I see it.

Only worth looking at for Herzog completists. Warning this one plays like an afternoon television  tearjerker for bleeding-heart housewives.
