"We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks", is a horrible excuse of a documentary film. It should never make money, meet its intended audience or be allowed to alter public opinion.
I am not in any way affiliated with WikiLeaks, Anon or any other revolutionary collective or hive mind. I do not incite any illegal action, as it's illegal, or breaching any ToC, since such would be a breach of contract. I implore you to do what is right, and to do so because you want to. Not because the Internets told you to.
We Steal Secrets tears down Assange, who has not been accused of any crime, while building a legal defence for Manning, whose trial over leak allegations will begin next month. And that's the problem with the film: Manning has not yet had his day in court, while Assange remains holed up in Ecuador's London embassy, unwilling to go to Sweden to answer prosecutors' questions. Neither man's story is complete, making it impossible for this film to be the definitive Wikileaks documentary.
