Entertainment Reviews:

Los Angeles Times - 01/18/2008
"Gibney is a scrupulous director, and TAXI TO THE DARK SIDE is filled with detailed factual information."
New York Times - 01/18/2008
"If recent American history is ever going to be discussed with the necessary clarity and ethical rigor, this film will be essential."
Entertainment Weekly - 01/25/2008
"[Gibney] achieves maximum force with the direct testimony of many involved in Dilawar's life and death..." -- Grade: A-
Empire - 06/01/2008
5 stars out of 5 -- "[Gibney] elicits a string of candid interviews from American servicemen, and yet his enquiry aims higher, scaling the chain of command before laying the blame on the uppermost echelons of the US administration."
Sight and Sound - 07/01/2008
"The film's crowning irony is to establish that not only is torture morally repugnant and contrary to all the ideal the US is supposed to stand for -- it's also highly inefficient as a means of eliciting information."

Product Description:

Oscar®-nominated director Alex Gibney (Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room) investigates the torture and killing of an innocent Afghani taxi driver in this gripping probe into reckless abuses of government power. Disturbing and incisive, the Academy Award®-winner Taxi To The Dark Side incorporates rare and never-before-seen images from inside the Bagram Air Force Base in Afghanistan and Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay prisons into its exposure of the Bush administration's "global war on terror." This stunningly crafted narrative demonstrates how this one man's life and death symbolizes the erosion of our civil rights and how what it means to be an American has changed forever.
