A documentary that looks at U.S. policies on torture with specifics on Bagram, Abu Graib, and Guantanamo Bay. The title refers to an Afghan man who, while driving his taxi, was captured and taken to a prison for terrorists and killed due to blunt force trauma by U.S. soldiers, though he had done nothing wrong. Uncomfortable at times, especially with the numerous photos of the abuse at Abu Graib and with chilling testimonials from the soldiers responsible. Not a happy watch, but interesting as it is probably the best documentary out there that details these terrible events.

Reminds Me of “Ghosts of Abu Ghraib”

I consider this the twin of the very informative “Ghosts of Abu Ghraib” because it essentially tackles the same issues. However, it does not mean that “Taxi to the Dark Side” doesn’t have anything worthwhile to offer. Although it obviously leans toward the left side of the political spectrum, it is able to set up its thesis and arguments in a focused manner. I was also surprised by how affecting this documentary becomes when the narrator (director Alex Gibney) and the people being interviewed stop talking and let the images speak for themselves. I have my own opinion of the Bush administration and I’m not going to discuss them here. However, I thought it was smart move when the film points out the flaws of President Bush and his regime–to highlight the source of why military personnel are...
