Docs dock at festival

DocuWeek takes right with 'Taxi'

Paris Hilton now knows more about the Bush administration’s policy on torture than the vast majority of Americans.

The lovely former resident of Lynwood’s Regional Detention Center (where no torture is an everyday policy) was among those at Sunday’s DocuWeek screening of “Taxi to  the Dark Side,” Alex Gibney’s look into “enhanced interrogation techniques” used in Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo.

At Thursday’s DocuWeek opening night ArcLight reception, ThinkFilm topper Mark Urman said he looks at the week’s fare (fest ends Thursday) “as a collection and I mean that in an almost Fashion Week sense. This is the best of what we’re going to see in documentaries in the coming months.”

Arguably the most well-known guest at the reception was Larry Flynt who said he supports docus because “the economics are more affordable and you get the message out.”

For the filmmakers, a key reason for participation is that DocuWeek fulfills the Academy’s seven-day qualifying run requirement.
