Werner Herzog's latest stunning documentary focuses on the bleak yet fascinating subject of capital punishment, following the moving story of Michael Perry and Jason Burkett, two young men who were found guilty of three capital murders. Perry was executed eight days after filming commenced while Burkett was sentenced only to life in prison. Unravelling the crime and trial from separate viewpoints, including the victim's families and prison staff, Herzog's masterful exploration of life on Death Row shows the devastating effects on all involved. Winner of the Grierson Award for Best Documentary at this year's London Film Festival, 'Into The Abyss: A Tale of Death, A Tale of Life' ranks among the director's finest works to date.
