    Taxi to the Dark Side adds something new to our awareness -- interviews with soldiers who served as interrogators in Afghanistan, and in Iraq's notorious Abu Ghraib prison, and who, in some cases that ended in courts martial, served prison terms themselves. show more

    Alex Gibney's forceful documentary starts with a single tragedy: the torture of an Afghani prisoner at Bagram Air Base. By the time it's over, he's broadened his focus into a documentary so damning of the U.S. government, it's hard to believe he even got it made. show more

    In the end, this passionate indictment of present U.S. policies stirs both sadness and outrage. show more

    This movie does not describe the America I learned about in civics class, or think of when I pledge allegiance to the flag. Yet I know I will get the usual e-mails accusing me of partisanship, bias, only telling one side, etc. What is the other side? See this movie, and you tell me. show more

    What one interviewee calls a "fog of ambiguity" surrounding what was and wasn't officially authorized shielded superior officers and key members of the Department of Defense -- namely Donald Rumsfeld. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    The film quickly becomes one of the most powerful, carefully researched investigations of the moral-legal side effects of current American military campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq. It's terrifying in a way that sneaks up on you. show more

    Gibney also made the Oscar-nominated "Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room," and he gets remarkable access to people you wouldn't expect to talk to him (including U.S. interrogators charged with crimes at Bagram). show more

    Chicago Tribune

    An invaluable document, both for its hard questions and for the sickeningly unflinching interviews that provide the answers. show more

    What an farcical and error filled movie. Another example from the Hate America far left. Don't waste your money on this drivel.

    To the 'reviewer' who said 'leftist propaganda, stayhome, do your laundry instead'...It is people like you that think the US can do no wrong, that all calls to decency and honor are simply leftist propaganda, that are so self-centered and unfeeling, that wallow in righteous inanity while people suffer, die, and courageous people try to bring these injustices to light and make some impact on intelligent people. Please, YOU stay home and do your friggin laundry. You have no relevance in this discussion.
