Review: We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks

0

We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks is the new film by Alex Gibney, the established director/producer whose credits include Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room (2005), Freakanomics (2010), and the upcoming Lance Armstrong: The Road Back. The film documents the rise to fame (or infamy) of Julian Assange, poster-boy for the Wikileaks organisation, and his many international exploits over his career. Delving into his past as a computer hacker in Australia as a teenager, to his current whereabouts in the Ecuadorian embassy, the film packs a very large amount of information into its running time. As well as Assange, the film looks at Bradley Manning, the US Army soldier who leaked a huge amount of information to Wikileaks, and propelled the organisation to fame.
