Movie of the week

The Fifth Estate

What is it: A dramatic thriller based on real events that reveals the quest to expose the deceptions and corruptions of power that turned an Internet upstart into the 21st century’s most fiercely debated organisation.

What We Say: Based on the real life founding of WikiLeaks – this biopic works as an exciting thriller. It would work well with the above film, Closed Circuit, in the paranoia stakes. Allthough this is true – and is therefore quite eye opening at times. Benedict Cumberbatch is excellent as Julian Assange.

Buy it because: It’s movie of the week! It was an unheralded film from last year that will gain respect as time moves on. The performances are excellent. It’s true and that adds to the tension and excitement as you watch it.
