The Fifth Estate presents viewers with an intriguing, engaging and thrilling study of the rise (and fall) of WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange. Much like The Social Network's account of the rise of Facebook, the film chronicles how Assange and company transformed WikiLeaks from a homegrown startup into an almost-unstoppable juggernaut. But there are political elements to the film as well, thanks to the world stage on which events unfold. So, does The Fifth Estate condemn Assange for his tactics, or does it paint him as a martyr for the new wave of citizen journalism? It's up to you to decide for yourself.
