Taxi to the Dark Side is a 2007 documentary film directed by American filmmaker Alex Gibney, and produced by Eva Orner and Susannah Shipman, which won the 2007 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. It focuses on the murder of an Afghan taxi driver named Dilawar, beaten to death by American soldiers while being held in extrajudicial detention at the Parwan Detention Facility.

Taxi to the Dark Side examines the USA’s policy on torture and interrogation in general, specifically the CIA’s use of torture and their research into sensory deprivation. The film includes opposition to the use of torture from its political and military opponents, as well as the defense of such methods; attempts by Congress to uphold the standards of the Geneva Convention forbidding torture; and popularization of the use of torture techniques in shows such as 24.

It is part of the Why Democracy? series, which consists of ten documentary films from around the world questioning and examining contemporary democracy. As part of the series, Taxi to the Dark Side was broadcast in over 30 different countries around the world from October 8–18, 2007. The BBC cut the film to 79 minutes for broadcast.

    Chomsky is a left gate-keeping liar of an arse-hole – just watch the cockroach squirm when you mention 9/11. Thanks for protecting the mass-murderers Noam – here’s your title and lots of money, now try and sleep you moron.

    Chomsky, Moore, Revero, etc. all have useful information. They may not have the whole story, but take what you can use, for as long as they have it. The best source i’ve found is Poncho Threetrees

    Excellent presentation but alas the captions leave much to be desired; I had to stop watching them as they were confusing. Too bad the text wasn’t prepared for the film and matching what the gentleman was saying.
