Not any wiser.

I enjoyed "We Still Secrets", but, as with any documentary, you never know on whose side the director/producers are. Eye-witness statements are convincing, but are we fools to believe them? It all starts well portraying Julian Assange as a reckless and fun fighter for truth. You cannot help but feel that he is fighting on behalf of all of us. And then, suddenly, the documentary takes different turn and depicts Assange as a self-indulgent and selfish dirty man hungry for fame, with a complete lack of compassion, fathering children all over the world having relationships with way too eager female fans (two of which go to police because, allegedly, Assange had unprotected sex with them and then refused to provide a certificate confirming he was HIV clear). Yes, the second half of "We Steal Secrets" felt a bit like a front page of a tabloid newspaper, with an array of self-important individuals sharing their point of view. In the end, I felt I was not any wiser about Assange, or the Bradley Manning, or the rise and fall of WikiLeaks. But this documentary will definitely keep you thinking.
