Watch a Trailer for Werner Herzog’s New Death Row Doc


The trailer for Werner Herzog’s death penalty documentary — Into the Abyss: A Tale of Life, a Tale of Death — has arrived. In the film, the acclaimed director follows the stories of several death row inmates in Texas, interviewing them and those who have been affected by their incarceration. Tackling such a difficult subject that inspires a lot of heated debate seems impossible to handle fairly, but if anyone could do it, it’s Herzog. Hit the break for a preview of this intimate, moving portrait — which arrives in limited release on November 11.
