Into The Abyss (2011)
Aside from the heavy capital punishment theme that runs through most of the movie, we get the whole back story on the crimes committed and even the actual crime scene videos are displayed for us. After Perry and his friends executed a family for nothing more then a car that they wanted to steal, they got into a bloody shootout with Texas police. The apprehension scene was something out of a Bonnie & Clyde movie. Cars and buildings filled with bullet holes, a police officer run over by a car and of course the criminals took many bullets themselves. Its just amazing they survived the shootout.
This one is a good watch for anyone who is into true crime and can stand the dark side of human nature. Its also got that Herzogian artsy flow to it but I warn you, Into The Abyss is a sad movie and it packs an emotional punch. Bring your tissues.
