    When the father, who was also in the kiln, designed the second life, there was a bit of tragic taste, but the whole film felt that there were too many descriptions of the case itself and too little discussion of in-depth issues.

    After the 3D documentary "The Cave of Forgotten Dreams", Werner Herzog brings a new documentary "Gaze into the Abyss", in which he still discusses the topic of extreme conditions of human nature. The theme of the story is about the "death penalty": he interviews death row prisoners, the police, the families of the victims, and the film is grim and gloomy, and it forces us to confront this morally ambiguous field. It's basically a conversation, a little boring.

Into the Abyss quotes

  • Fred Allen: Hold still and watch the birds. Once you get up into your life like that, and once you feel good about your life, you do start watching what the birds do. What the doves are doing. Like the hummingbirds. Why are there so many of them.
