Risk (2016)

The Sunday Telegraph - - Today’s Television -

BBC TWO, 10.00PM ★★★★

“I don’t be­lieve in mar­tyrs,” says Ju­lian As­sange in this film from Laura Poitras. “But I think peo­ple should take risks.” Poitras’s por­trait of the Wik­iLeaks founder, shot be­tween 2010 and 2013, pre­sum­ably takes its ti­tle from that off­hand but telling com­ment. The ac­cess is just as head-spin­ning, with Poitras even get­ting her cam­era on the back of his mo­tor­bike, as she takes us to the cen­tre of the Wik­iLeaks op­er­a­tion.
