The latest film from Werner Herzog continues the director’s forays into the documentary genre with his trademark auteur flair. Focusing on two prison inmates who were sentenced for a triple homicide over ten years ago, Herzog combines emotionally-charged interviews with period news and police footage, exploring how the murders affected both the victims and the perpetrators alike. A delicate piece that is sure to spark debate.
