Storyline

Doctors of the Dark Side is the first feature length documentary about the pivotal role of physicians and psychologists in detainee torture. The stories of four detainees and the doctors involved in their abuse demonstrate how US Army and CIA doctors implemented the Enhanced Interrogation Techniques and covered up signs of torture at Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib. Interviews with medical, legal and intelligence experts and evidence from declassified government memos document what has been called the greatest scandal in American medical ethics. Based on four years of research by Producer/Director Martha Davis, written by Oscar winning Mark Jonathan Harris, and filmed in HD by Emmy winning DP Lisa Rinzler, the film shows how the torture of detainees could not continue without the assistance of the doctors.

Justice As The CIA Sees Fit
16 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

Well, all you serious-minded documentary viewers - Now, here's a little, eye-opening presentation to totally immerse yourself in for 73 minutes. And it involves the scandalous American medical profession, along with the CIA, and the US military, as it clearly existed during both the Bush and the Obama administrations.

What inevitably goes on in "Doctors of the Dark Side" is actually so surreal and, yes, so downright shocking at times that it certainly proves, once again, that fact is, indeed, stranger (and more sinister) than fiction. Oh, yes, it is.

Disturbing, sobering, and filled to overflowing with American disgrace and dishonour - "Doctors of the Dark Side" takes the viewer on a journey to "Camp Justice" in Baghdad, Iraq (Can you believe the hypocrisy of that detention facility's name?) and Guantanamo, Cuba, where torture was condoned, medical records were falsified, and a "blind-eye" approach was taken by all of those in charge.

And, of course, it was all done in the name and the glory of the Red, White & Blue.
