I didn’t even know they were making a movie about wikileaks. But I must admit, the trailer looks really intriguing. “The Fifth Estate” is about Julian Assange, wikileak’s founder.
When wikileaks came to the surface three years ago, no one knew it would be this scandalous. WikiLeaks published secret US Military documents, covering military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. It also covered other hot topics; such as Scientology, Henry Kissinger’s Middle East peace talks, and American profiling and investigation of foreign ambassadors to the USA.
Some of the leaks were about Kuwait, specifically covering our Interior Minister’s suggestions on how to handle Kuwaiti Guantanamo detainees [link1 & link2]. It also leaked documents that predicted the Fukushima nuclear disaster, released documents warned that Japanese nuclear plants weren’t capable of withstanding strong earthquakes [link].
The movie will be released in October, but I don’t know if it will also be released here in Kuwait. I personally am very interested in watching this movie, like I’m sure many people are too.
