a documentary featuring two men that were NEVER interviewed
16 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To begin with the title is ridiculous: So obviously and transparently biased against the Wikileaks endeavor--which is pivotal to the DEMOCRATIC PROCESS and has become a myth in today's United States with the Patriot Act nullifying all rights to privacy; bought "science" to keep business, the war machine, and big oil running as usual, and the mainstream focus ever away from the word CLIMATE.

Secondly, the two characters that are the main feature of the film, Julian Assange and Bradley Manning, are NEVER interviewed for this film, not to mention Assange has publicly denounced the film (as well as director Oliver Stone. Seems like director Alex Gibney was paid a pretty penny to do such a thing and it is a big waste of energy and funds, shame on you Director Alex Gibney.
