Werner Herzog's Into The Abyss (2011) is a powerful look at the death penalty. I think Herzog makes a much stronger statement here than that which was made in Dead Man Walking by letting real killers, their families, people who work in the system, and the families of the victims talk about their experiences. Herzog looks a single case involving two young men who committed a triple homicide in order to get a car. It is something to consider, and I think Herzog chose Texas, since they have the most executions of any state in the union. Recently, I read that the 82% of the Japanese also support the death penalty, the only other developed country that executes prisoners.
