Into the Abyss: A Tale of Death, a Tale of Life (2011)

An American British German documentary directed by Werner Herzog.
Interviews are conducted after some teenagers have murdered a woman and stolen her cars and the shootout that occurred after this. The surviving teens from the incident are on Death Row in prison.
How many of the interviewees can we record crying? would have been an accurate title for this. Even the reverend who works at the execution area cries at the beginning. The only person not crying on camera was the guy about to be executed. They interviewed the families of people who died in the incident as well as a past warden of the execution area. It was all very depressing. The video was of decent quality and included police crime scene videos. The audio was decent and I could hear everyone. This was just not what I like to watch. Overall, I don't see why anyone would want to watch such a depressing film. I rate it poor for being such poorly chosen subject matter.
