Into the Abyss
"In his fascinating exploration of a triple homicide case in Conroe, Texas, master filmmaker Werner Herzog (Cave of Forgotten Dreams, Grizzly Man) probes the human psyche to explore why people kill - and why a state kills. Through intimate conversations with those involved, including 28-year-old death row inmate Michael Perry (scheduled to die within eight days of appearing on-screen), Herzog achieves what he describes as ôa gaze into the abyss of the human soul.ö HerzogÆs inquiries also extend to the families of the victims and perpetrators as well as a state executioner and pastor whoÆve been with death row prisoners as theyÆve taken their final breaths. As heÆs so often done before, HerzogÆs investigation unveils layers of humanity, making an enlightening trip out of ominous territory."Examines capital punishiment through conversations with death row inmate Michael Perry and those affected by his crime.
