“Why does God allow capital punishment?” asks filmmaker Werner Herzog to the chaplain of the Texas prison where this documentary goes to visit death row inmates. Good question. Master doc-maker Herzog (Cave of Forgotten Dreams, Grizzly Man) gets some astounding footage, interviewing jailbirds and a retired executioner who just couldn’t take it anymore, but the most powerful mini-portrait in this disheartening film is of Michael Perry, a boyish convicted killer scheduled to die by lethal injection. He murdered three people essentially for the keys to a red Camaro, then left behind a mountain of forensic evidence. Covers much the same ground as other death row movies, but with the Herzog difference. (107 min.)
Director: Werner Herzog
