DESCRIPTION

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.

REVIEW

A real-life cyber-thriller with real-life consequences, Alex Gibney's We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks is a riveting and revelatory documentary .

    It was excellent and I enjoyed the conversation and food afterwards. I look forward to the next movie.

    It was a well-done documentary. Assange is paranoic (if that is a word) and ironically secretive. It really laid out the story nicely
