The FIfth Estate (2013)

ImageThis is a melodramatic story focused around melodramatic characters which lacked depth and failed to resonate. Rather than focusing on the breakthrough story of Wikileaks, it instead focused on the odd bromance between Julian and Daniel while oddly skimming over other key players such as Manning and Davies. The acting was good. The directing was mediocre and the “cyber world” was unneeded. The sound mixing for the score and music felt slapped together and sometimes felt as intrusive as a late night commercial.
