Taxi to the Dark Side

Taxi to the Dark Side is new documentary film by Alex Gibney scheduled for release January 11, 2008 in NY and January 18, 2008 in LA. Here’s the first paragraph from the press kit:

From the director of Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, Alex Gibney’s TAXI TO THE DARK SIDE is a gripping investigation into the reckless abuse of power by the Bush Administration. By probing the homicide of an innocent taxi driver at the Bagram Air Force Base in Afghanistan, the film exposes a worldwide policy of detention and interrogation that condones torture and the abrogation of human rights. This disturbing and often brutal film is the most incisive examination to date of the Bush Administration’s willingness, in its prosecution of the war on terror, to undermine the essence of the rule of law. The film asks and answers a key question: what happens when a few men expand the wartime powers of the executive to undermine the very principles on which the United States was founded.

Here’s a brief interview of Alex Gibney by Steve Clemons:
