It is clear to see that the director Alex Gibney is fascinated by the degree of corruption that has taken root in the character of a large number of the American people. In order to do so, Alex Gibney appears to have used the cruelties of torture as the primary instrument to stress his point. What comes as most touching is the fact that Alex Gibney has sprinkled the movie with actual images and sequences from the actual series of events and has used interviews with a considerable degree of craft to highlight the damage that was caused as a result of the torture to the prisoners from Bagram and the people who were in Bagram at one time or the other during these events. The interviews are perhaps the jewel in the crown for Alex Gibney’s Taxi to the Dark Side since they present first person accounts of events that took lives. The mere fact that a taxi driver was killed in this way in reality keeps sending chills down the audiences’ spine every step of the way as the movie progresses. It is well known that the American media and the Bush administration chose to regard the incident as one which occurred merely because of a few unexpected bad eggs in the region, but after watching Alex Gibney’s movie, it is apparent that Alex Gibney has tried to show the incident through a much different perspective and has showed it to be a significant part of the bigger picture.
