Entertainment Reviews:

Wall Street Journal - 09/09/2011
"What's revealed here is by turns horrifying, surprising, anguishing and deeply moving."
Film Comment - 11/01/2011
"[T]he film's most lasting impression is of the resilience and repression of memory that the crime's survivors require to cope."
Movieline - 11/09/2011
"[A]n outlandish, compassionate and, at times, improbably buoyant film about life's capacity for grief and horror and about how it bubbles on miraculously in the face of such things. It's the best thing Herzog's done in years."
Los Angeles Times - 11/11/2011
"Werner Herzog's understated new documentary, INTO THE ABYSS: A TALE OF DEATH, A TALE OF LIFE, is at its core the filmmaker's personal argument against capital punishment.
Hollywood Reporter - 11/05/2011
"[The film] bores in deep, for an unsettling inquiry into capital punishment in America....It's certain to be among the year's most-seen and most-lauded non-fiction features."
Sight and Sound - 04/01/2012
"HERZOG wisely omits any anti-capital-punishment tub-thumping: a SHOAH-like documentation of the bureaucracy of executions is enough."
Total Film - 05/01/2012
4 stars out of 5 -- "Herzog's eye stays keen, his lateral style of inquiry drawing out details only he could....A piercing film that finds affirmative value in the places other filmmakers wouldn't look."
