2013 - FROM ONE SECOND TO THE NEXT, Werner Herzog's texting while driving documentary is good but mighty harrowing

Apparently the major cell phone providers approached Herzog about directing a PSA about the dangers of texting while driving.  They certainly picked the right man, This is a very good documentary and really tough to watch short film.

Herzog focuses on four different stories the two middle stories in particular are extremely moving.  Herzog is one of the masters of the modern documentary form although I can't recall him making a film which delivers a real "in your face" message about texting while in a moving vehicle.

Here's the YouTube link.

Film making as a manipulative emotional teaching tool, extremely well done.

35 minutes.
