  • It's complicated. And it's fascinating. show more

  • Unfolding like an espionage thriller but with a methodical journalistic skill at organizing a mountain of facts, the film raises stimulating questions about transparency and freedom of information in a world in which governments and corporations have plenty to hide. show more

  • Even the movie's title, or rather the source of it, is a surprise. Not to spoil the fun, but it's neither Assange nor one of his allies who nonchalantly acknowledges that "we steal secrets." show more

    Amazingly well put together movie that works to show all sides of a very complicated story. If you spend any time on the internet I would suggest you watch it.

    Voices are a bit difficult to understand occasionally but, nonetheless, it gets the message across loud and clear regarding the birth, growth, and ultimate demise of WikiLeaks.
