8. Into the Abyss

Werner Herzog is just such an excellent documentarian, always willing to tackle weird, sensitive, or taboo topics. This is a look at Michael Perry and Jason Burkett, convicted of a senseless series of cold-blooded murderers. As the documentary takes place, we discover that Perry is days away from his execution. This isn't a look at the guilt or innocence of the two men, making it different from other crime docs, but it's still a wonderful watch.
