Taxi to the Dark Side

Alex Gibney (Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room) tells the story of an unlucky Afghan taxi driver murdered in an American prison camp during "interrogations" in Bagram, Afghanistan. It uses this one story to illustrate the bigger context of our country's penchant for torture over the past seven plus years.

This won a Best Doc last year and I can see why. It is quite good and well worth seeing. This is one of those films about the past seven years that will be referenced to and re-viewed for years. It is downright riveting.
