Film Review | The Fifth Estate
Julian Assange is the bad guy in this film based on his multifaceted life
There are many facets to Julian Assange. The founder of the website WikiLeaks, who is currently in diplomatic asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, has been both reviled and revered in the short time frame during which he achieved global fame. As the self-proclaimed revealer of truth, Assange published confidential documents from anonymous sources, which was celebrated by some as real journalism and criticized by others as being dangerous. The jury is still out on that one.
