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.

Empire
Alex Gibney adds to his forensic examinations of Enron and Abu Ghraib with another fine documentary. Undeterred by grey areas or the hostility of his subject, the filmmaker tackles one of the stories of our times with dynamism and smarts. Full Review

We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks is at once an awkward mingling of two complex life stories and a gripping, necessary look at how information is gathered, shared and, yes, stolen. Full Review

New York Magazine (Vulture)
By the time this twisty, probing, altogether enthralling movie hits its final notes, the crimes against the Constitution and humanity have been upstaged by personal demons. Which is our woe as well. Full Review

You’ll leave knowing slightly more about the who, what and why of WikiLeaks; you’ll also wish the whole shebang didn’t fell like such a tone-deaf data dump overall. Full Review
David Rooney
The Hollywood Reporter
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. Full Review
