Film #286: TAXI TO THE DARK SIDE
Taxi To The Dark Side
4 out of 5 stars
A stomach-turning documentary of prisoner abuse in the days after 9/11 (and beyond). The story is told as dispassionately as possible, but, the crimes (and make no mistake - these are crimes we’re talking about) are so egregious as to inspired contempt in even the most hardened viewer. Even if viewers think they understand things like Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo, there is more to the story and filmmaker Alex Gibney does a terrific job of telling it concisely and in a way that is completely understandable (despite an admittedly convoluted sequence of events). This is a must see, kids.
