Alex Gibney's Taxi to the Dark Side wins the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature!

Chelsea director Alex Gibney won the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature at the 2008 Academy Awards. A searing look at the Bush administration’s wartime conduct in Afghanistan, A.O. Scott of The New York Times wrote:

A year from now, the presidency of George W. Bush will end, but the consequences of Mr. Bush’s policies and the arguments about them are likely to be with us for a long time. As next Jan. 20 draws near, there is an evident temptation, among many journalists as well as politicians seeking to replace Mr. Bush, to close the book and move ahead, an impulse that makes the existence of documentaries like Alex Gibney’s “Taxi to the Dark Side” all the more vital. If recent American history is ever going to be discussed with the necessary clarity and ethical rigor, this film will be essential.

The film debuts on HBO on September 29th, 2009.
