From One Second to the Next


Director: Werner Herzog

Language: English

“It’s life. You get one chance, and you live with the choices you make.” Director Werner Herzog’s latest may be a work for hire — a 35-minute documentary for AT&T on the consequences of texting and driving — but it’s this existential point that he hammers home, interviewing perpetrators and victims from four horrific accidents. It’s effective, sure, but also haunting and intensely poignant. This may wind up being Herzog’s most-viewed film in ages, gaining over 1,000,000 online views in just five days.
