â€œInto the Abyss: A Tale of Death, A Tale of Lifeâ€ Review
Please choose seven of the following questions and answer them as a form of your â€œreviewâ€ of this film.
- Why would an award winning director start a film like this with the chaplain? What is the significance of the squirrel story?
- Looking back at the film as a whole, why do you think Werner Herzog chose to use this story?
- How did you feel when you hear Michael Perry saying, â€œIâ€™m going home or Iâ€™m going homeâ€?
- Why do you think the director included the police crime scene footage showing an open cookbook and tray of cookies?
- What do you make of Michael Perryâ€™s claim to be innocent?
- Think about the story about the Phillips Head screwdriver and the misfire? What did you gain from that scene?
- Were you surprised to learn that the man in that scene couldnâ€™t read? Does that inform any of your opinions?
- What were your reactions to Perry in general? What about more specially, relating to his stories about the canoe trip?
- Think about when you â€œmetâ€ Delbert Burkett (Jasonâ€™s dad). Did this inform any of your judgments?
- What do you make of Mr. Burkettâ€™s claim that God helped him testify?
- Think about Michael talking about his death being eight days away. How did you think he was coping? Why?
- Other than to explain the process, why do you think Herzog included the footage of Captain Fred Allan describing his episode following the execution of Carla Faye?
- Why was Lisa, the sister and daughter of the deceased, so glad that she went to the execution? Does this influence your opinions of the morality of capital punishment?
- Why does Jason Burkettâ€™s dad think it is useful to explain that he sees no dettereance in the death penalty? Does that matter?
- Herzog says Jesus would probably have opposed the death penalty. From your study of the New Testament do you agree with Herzog?
- Think about the wedding and children section. What did you take from that?
- When Texans talk about â€˜living your dashâ€™. What does this mean? Look at the subtitle of the film (â€œInto the Abyss: A Tale of Death, a Tale of Lifeâ€). Why might Werner Hertzog have added this?
