Cornered in a tiny building for half a decade, Julian Assange is undeterred even as the legal jeopardy he faces threatens to undermine the organization he leads and fracture the movement he inspired. With unparalleled access over 6 years, Poitras captures the motives of Assange and his inner circle.
Citizenfour found a hero in Edward Snowden—but Laura Poitras’s next documentary is much more ambivalent toward its subject. Power is never far from accusations of self-interest and abuse in Risk, which follows Julian Assange from 2011 to 2016 and sees him become an increasingly knotty character.
