Watch: Werner Herzog's 'Into the Abyss' Documentary Official Trailer
"I'm either going home or home." An official trailer has been revealed via Apple for one of the most praised and talked-about documentaries to hit the fall festival circuit - Werner Herzog's Into the Abyss. This time Herzog heads down to Texas to look at the death penalty and panel system, following two convicts involved in a homicide, providing viewers with a "gaze into the abyss of the human soul." The film has quite a bit of buzz thanks to rave reviews like this on The Film Stage: "Herzog remains a master, providing us humanity, which is far more complex – and troubling than the facts." This looks very good, highly recommend viewing.
