Shame, shame, shame. They never even interviewed Julian Assange or WikiLeaks.
6 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Director Oliver Stone has strongly come out against this "We Steal Secrets" film. Further, WikiLeaks is also quoted as saying, "it is a lie upon lie."

It's not a documentary. They never even interviewed WikiLeaks or Julian Assange. A couple of ex-WikiLeaks people that were paid off to do the film contributed to it. This film is crap.

Save your money and donate it instead to WikiLeaks to fight political corruption and help save humanity. Remember, it's because of Julian Assange's whistleblowing WikiLeaks website that the war in Iraq ended. The United States government is doing everything they can to help make crappy films like this to brainwash people against WikiLeaks. Don't fall for it.

If you would like to see a real documentary about Julian Assange, watch "Underground: The Julian Assange Story."
