We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks

In looking at WikiLeaks from its founding to its meltdown, Alex Gibney patches together a tale that's mostly about the site's founder, Julian Assange, but also about Private Bradley Manning—a soldier and a tech geek who, depending on whom you ask, is either a traitor or a hero. Boasting interviews with just about everyone—except Assange and Manning—We Steal Secrets pulls from news footage, documents, and chat transcripts, and from the words of journalists, hackers, intelligence experts, and CIA directors. It's a sprawling, unpredictable infodump—even Lady Gaga turns up—and the result is formless but engrossing.
