Through the eyes of Daniel Domscheit-Berg, an early supporter and eventual colleague of Julian Assange, the film follows the heady, early days of Wikileaks to its abrupt end after a series of controversial and history changing info leaks. The website's overnight success brought instant fame to its principal architects, but as their power expanded across the globe, Daniel grew increasingly disillusioned with Julian's questionable tactics and ethics. The rift between the two friends became irreparable and their ideological differences tore them apart, but not before they revolutionized, for better and worse, the flow of information to news media and the world at large.
The Fifth Estate features a fit and faithful 1080p/AVC-encoded video presentation that rarely stumbles. Color and contrast are generally natural and lifelike, albeit with the occasional palette hack (teals and icy blues are popular) or stylistic tweak. Primaries are restrained but arresting too, black levels are deep and satisfying, and delineation is excellent. And detail? Edges are crisp and clean (with only a hint of intermittent ringing) and textures are revealing and well-resolved. Softness is apparent from time to time -- particularly during scenes that take place in the infinite offices of the WikiLeaks' artificial reality -- but only insofar as Tobias Schliessler's cinematography and the FX team's work dictates. A fine veneer of grain is present as well, while errant noise, artifacting, aliasing and banding are nowhere to be found. All told, it's a terrific presentation sure to please anyone who warms to the film.
