Into the abyss About
Into the Abyss

A Herzogian take on capital punishment following the template of many of his documentaries. Herzog makes interesting choices in what he chooses to show and what he chooses to ask. As one discovers more about the characters and their upbringing one might think they are only victims of their environment yet they made the individual choices that led them to where they are. No forgiveness is made here nor should be.
