Did last night's Oscars get you interested in the two Best Documentary winners, Taxi to the Dark Side (feature) and Freeheld (short)? In recent weeks, Vulture has talked to both Academy Award–winning directors. Taxi's Alex Gibney gave us his thoughts on the waterboarding debate (and talked up his next documentary, Gonzo, about Hunter S. Thompson), and Freeheld's Cynthia Wade revealed how Oscar was part of her master plan for calling attention to gay rights in an election season.
