"We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks"
Director: Alex Gibney
Stars: Julian Assange
In theaters: May 24
Why it should be on your radar: One of the best films of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival was this Alex Gibney documentary on enigmatic WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Gibney is a filmmaker who gets better and better every time he plies his trade, and this is a nice piece of steak to chew on with all the popcorn and candy that's sure to flow this summer. We might even be talking about it at the end of the year, but then, I said the same thing about Gibney's last masterful doc, "Mea Maxima Culpa"; you never know how that branch will react to work in a given year.
