Alex Gibney Documentary Film Maker
Recently there has been an ongoing public awareness of Alex Gibney's documentary "Going Clear The Prison Of Belief" which is about the Church of Scientology.
I haven't seen it and don't have HBO so I won't see it on March 29th. Apparently it will be shown when The Game Of Thrones is usually broadcast.
This post is about Alex Gibney's documentary "We Steal Secrets: The Story Of WikiLeaks".
It is fast paced and moving. About half an hour is given to the story about Bradley Manning, the 19 year old who divulged US military classified information to WikiLeaks. This act was championed by pacifists, yet was illegal. And this boy is spending his life in prison.
He is small - and a bit feminine. I don't want to think about his life there.
This Netflix broadcast documentary goes on to review the arrest of Julian Assange on sexual abuse charges. Backed up by two mature women who slept with him but didn't avoid sex without a condom...?
Was this the typical "honey trap"? Who knows.
This is an intriguing and well balanced documentary. Offense against more than the US. Yet but no charges filed except for the possible "honey trap".
I certainly don't know. But it's a gripping film!
