About the Movie

Watch it now while it’s in theaters. From Academy Award®-winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney comes this gripping edge-of-your-seat thriller about Julian Assange and the creation of WikiLeaks, the controversial website that facilitated the largest security breach in U.S. history. Paralleling Assange’s rise and fall with that of Pfc. Bradley Manning, the troubled young soldier who leaked hundreds of thousands of classified documents, We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks is a “riveting, nail-bitingly tense” (Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly), multi-layered exposé about transparency in the information age and our ever-elusive search for the truth.

Too early for movie

The one soldiers trial is just beginning and the founder guy is still hiding out in the embassy of Ecuador, they should of waited longer to put the resolution of this in the movie

Slow, Plodding, Boring

This is the type of movie that gets good reviews because it makes the average person feel informed -- and therefore gives them the illusion of being intelligent -- people like secrets because they seem precious -- but in this case the movie offers nothing that a well read individual would find novel -- just pull yourself away from sports center and reality TV ---

What a story!

Honestly, I have followed the Wikileaks story pretty closely, so I wasn't expecting much from the film. Was I wrong. The movie is gripping, moving and in the end intensely compelling. Tightly edited, well written, it propels you forward. If losing a sense of time passing it a mark of being involved in a film, then I was totally in. I had no idea of time.

I rented the movie at first, but I will purchase it because it so compelling. I should also add that I am no Assange fanatic, nor am I passionately anti Wikileaks. I can see good in both and I can the problems with both. The filmmakers do themselves a world of credit in telling this story without an axe to grind.
