Decent enough doc but nothing stupendous. It is about a minister, Carroll Picket, who advises death row inmates in their last hours who has decided that he is strongly anti-death penalty. His pro death penalty stance changed over the years based on the case of a man who he believed to be innocent. After each one of the 95 inmates that he spent time with in their final hours were executed, Picket recorded his thoughts on cassette. The best scenes in the film are the one where he listens to portions of those cassettes.
Overall though, this was a fairly standard doc and not nearly as captivating as the last anti railroading innocent men doc I saw, The Trials of Darryl Hunt.
