Filmed with the startling immediacy of unfolding history, Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney’s We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks details the creation of Julian Assange’s controversial website, which facilitated the largest security breach in U.S. history. Hailed by some as a free-speech hero and by others as a traitor and terrorist, the enigmatic Assange’s rise and fall are paralleled with that of Pfc. Bradley Manning, the brilliant, troubled young soldier who downloaded hundreds of thousands of documents from classified U.S. military and diplomatic servers, revealing the behind-the-scenes workings of the government’s international diplomacy and military strategy. In seeking to expose abuse in the corridors of power, Assange and Manning were undermined by forces within and without, as well as by their own human failings. We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks is a riveting, multi-layered tale about transparency in the information age and our ever-elusive search for the truth.
No stars for propaganda
If it were possible to give 0 stars for the worst kind of sycophancy and towing a corrupt official line. Due the score would be
Apparently it’s okay to steal secretes––just don’t expose them!
Julien Assange has certainly insulted a lot of people who prefer to be kept in the dark about issues. I guess for some, it’s more appealing to deny corruption happens, rather than be accountable and stand up for the principles we claim to live by. This movie seams to be more in the ‘Argo’ category––a movie with a hidden agenda.
Really seems biased
After watching this I really think that it must have been made to discredit wikileaks and thats it. It is very biased documentary, and pretty much only interviews the men that wikileaks has rubbed the wrong way. Very dissapointing.
