Into The Abyss (2011)

Directed by: Werner Herzog
Country: USA

Plot: Conversations with death row inmate Michael Perry and those affected by his crime serve as an examination of why people and the state ... kill.
Quick comment: Starting from a real case of murdering in Texas, Herzog conceives this superb documentary about death penalty. Not only focusing the alienation or the motives of the murderers, he rather goes deeper, by showing the side effects felt by the victim's families and also by ones working on death row. Having clarified his own point of view, Herzog leaves at the same time a wide margin for being debated on this matter.
