Taxi to the dark side is a movie by Alex Gibney in which he seems to want to present a rare insight into the lawlessness that prevailed during the Bush administration (Plonsky, Begg and Brand). Alex Gibney attempts to present the viewer with a picture of how war time conditions in Afghanistan gave birth to some of the most horrifying heights of cruelty and brutality. Alex Gibney shows the viewers a story of an Afghan taxi driver whose name is Dilawar. Alex Gibney shows how Dilawar was brutally beaten up by American soldiers at the Bagram Air Base and how they treated him with such a degree of mercilessness that he died out of injuries inflicted from the beating.
We see that for some reason, the murder of the taxi driver Dilawar becomes a story that is echoed far and wide and how the act of brutality is denounced by the public for the breaching of the Geneva Convention that the murder of Dilawar reflects. Alex Gibney does an excellent job of showing to the audience how laws are made in the United States and then dodged in the corridors of law and justice and the characters that are involved in this evasion of law and order.
