Into the Abyss, the new documentary from Werner Herzog tells a tale of bloody murder that is also the director's statement against capital punishment. In Conroe, Tex., Herzog interviews Michael Perry and Jason Burkett, who were convicted a decade ago of a triple homicide. The film has the same moral design as Dead Man Walking, but since it never gets inside the darkness of the killers' minds, it's really just a rambling episode of A Current Affair. C
