Documentary, War
Director Alex Gibney far exceeds the promise that his Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room showed with this documentary about the torture and murder of prisoners at the Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan. Interviewing not only surviving victims of the violence, but service men who were indicted and ultimately convicted in the assaults, Gibney finds elements of our government gone rogue. By tying the techniques used at Bagram to those used at Abu Ghraib and other prisons, and with careful investigation, Gibney makes it clear that this was not the work of isolated soldiers, nor were low-level Army personnel simply acting on their own. Gibney has made a tremendously important documentary for all Americans.
