Painfully moving documentary.
11 March 2003 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Executions" is one of the most disturbing documentaries ever made.Broken down into chapters,the film tells about the major forms of execution-stoning,hanging,shooting,decapitation,lethal injection etc.It is certainly interesting and very moving discussion about capital punishment.The film has no fake scenes-it's certainly real.The final scene of the execution of Mohamadine Salar is so painfully moving and disturbing that I have a tears in my eyes during this scene-these shocking images will haunt you forever.They provide a chilling proof that most of these executions are not quick,clean or humane.The film may be extremely hard to take for some,but if you're not easily offended give this one a look.
