I saw Into the Abyss by Herzog. I expected an anti-capital punishment take, but other than Werner stating his thinking regarding the wrongness of the state killing people, that's not so much where this doc goes. It mostly reveals a lot of what is otherwise invisible to us - the reverend that is there at the end, the officer in charge of carrying out the procedure, the underclass that fills the prisons while also feeling a big brunt of the effects of crime, and the family in a gated community with their own struggles. There's a feeling at the end that Life pushes through the attempts to conceal and contain all the messiness.
