Paul Hamann's BBC documentary 'Fourteen Days in May - The Execution of Edward Earl Johnson' has the qualities of a great documentary. His film crew seems to have enjoyed great freedom inside the Arkansas State Penitentiary. The co-operation of the warden and a some sort of 'why not attitude', absent in 2012 culture, is evident from the ease in which characters appear on screen.
Like the title suggests, Hamann and his crew spend two weeks in the prison. It is evident that the they manage to create a personal relationship with many of the films protagonists. Relevant questions about capital punishment are explored, especially about its in practice implementation.
I liked this documentary a lot. As well as being informative and interesting , some of it is just heart-wrenching. I recommend people who are interested in the subject to watch it.
