The Confused State
The Fifth Estate is a film that’s bound to attract a considerable amount of controversy and end up with a fairly divisive crowd, and that’s basically why you’re witnessing the overwhelming negative reception from critics. Ultimately, bias will sweep in and largely contribute to your final thoughts on the film, essentially depending on what side you’re on. Admittedly, this picture paints a villainous image for Julian Assange, especially as the plot progresses, and a plethora of reviewers apparently took issue with that, including Mr. Julian Assange himself. Well, there are also those critics that post their extremely vague negative responses to the film that don’t exactly address a particular fault within the movie’s content and definitely produce a sense of shadiness in terms of what exactly drove them so crazy over its material.
Anyways, let’s focus on my reaction to the feature in general with as much honesty as possible. I won’t lecture you on how much you should hate the NSA and the government’s surveillance activities nor should I protest such anarchists’ decisions. I’ll judge the film as it should be judged, but of course, the level of its accuracy should absolutely be considered. Concentrating on the strengths at first, right off the bat, it’s quite obvious just how exceptional the lead performances from Benedict Cumberbatch and Daniel Bruhl are, and as usual, Cumberbatch carries that impressive volume of charisma with him where you simply can’t take your eyes off his mannerisms and speech (I believe I already noted this in my Star Trek review); in short, his portrayal of Julian Assange is terrifically veracious. Daniel Bruhl, coming off of his memorable performance in Rush, makes his mark yet again, playing a foil to Julian in a way. Furthermore, The Fifth Estate unquestionably works as a full-fledged thriller with the several twists and turns throughout. The story, itself, is compelling and though it’s abundantly filled with journalistic terminology and complicated concepts, you’re forced to dedicate twice the attention to the screen.
On that note, The Fifth Estate suffers from a highly noticeable and detrimental flaw: its messy execution. What fundamentally follows persistently throughout the narrative are perplexing scenes that leave the audience scratching their head- and not in a good way in case you’re asking. The movie’s editing style and script will doubtlessly leave you confused in numerous instances. While you’re attempting to understand how exactly a specific action or trade works, the film casts you into another situation that leaves you baffled yet again, and this really stems from- as previously mentioned- its wide array of terminology and the fast pace with which it irresponsibly deals with its explanation to the moviegoers. This is precisely why The Social Network shone in its brilliance: it was perfectly comprehensible and continued with remarkable execution- the pure opposite of The Fifth Estate. By the time the story comes to a conclusion, you will have likely properly sorted the film’s ideas but to have a thriller work is to avoid placing your interested crowd into a muddled and jumbled predicament as it lessens the satisfaction and surprise that comes with a thrilling experience.
At the end of the day, The Fifth Estate is great in that it sparks a mixed reaction and requires both extreme sides of the table to continuously argue over the rightfulness or criminality of Wikileaks’ existence and the path that Julian Assange took to see it to success. There are too many factors to just definitively point out if you should or shouldn’t view it. However, if you’re not one for complicated, fast- paced political thrillers, this probably won’t be an enjoyable time at the movies. Otherwise, there might be something here that’ll get you thinking about the whole debacle of our privacy vs. the so-called “evil government.”
‘THE FIFTH ESTATE’: Two Stars (Out of Five)
Propaganda film attempting to smear the public’s view of the internet news site WikiLeaks. It’s based on the books ‘Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange and the World’s Most Dangerous Website’ by Daniel Domscheit-Berg and ‘WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange’s War on Secrecy’ by David Leigh and Luke Harding. It was scripted by Josh Singer and directed by Bill Condon. The movie stars Benedict Cumberbatch as WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and Daniel Bruhl as his partner in crime Daniel Domscheit-Berg. The two lead actors are both great in the film but the movie itself is shamefully exploitative.
The story explores how Julian Assange (Cumberbatch) and Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Bruhl) first met (in 2007) and started up the website WikiLeaks. The site is dedicated to releasing important news to the public, that’s currently being kept secret, while protecting their sources (and keeping them anonymous). Their relationship becomes troubled as the website grows more and more controversial and Daniel suspects that Assange has ulterior motives for ‘publishing the truth’ (while not really caring about protecting the people providing the information). The movie also examines Assange’s upbringing (and time spent in a cult) and Daniel’s relationships with colleagues, family and friends.
The film is somewhat suspenseful and adequately directed but it makes no effort whatsoever to hide it’s true agenda; that of smearing WikiLeaks and it’s founder Julian Assange. Like I said the two lead performances are excellent though, especially Cumberbatch (who is supportive of WikiLeaks and communicated regularly with Assange during filming). Cumberbatch was drawn to the acting opportunities provided by his complex role and encouraged rewrites of the horrid script. He’s said “No matter how you cut it, he’s (Assagne) done us a massive service, to wake us up to the zombielike way we absorb our news”. I don’t have any idea what kind of a person Assange is but I agree he’s done us all “a massive service” and don’t think this film does anyone one. I’m glad it bombed (so horribly) at the Box Office and think most people were smart enough to know what it’s true intentions are. The documentary ‘WE STEAL SECRETS: THE STORY OF WIKILEAKS’ is a much more honest and informative film on the subject. You should check it out instead.
