Death and Texas

J. R. Jones of the Chicago Reader wrote a compelling comparison of our 2008 film At the Death House Door, directed by Peter Gilbert and Steve James, and Into the Abyss, a new film by Werner Herzog. In "Death and Texas", Jones goes into depth about the similarities and differences in both films examine and condemn the practice of capital punishment, and even share some interview subjects.
