REVIEWS Citizen K - The rapid rise and thunderous fall of a Russian oligarch

ZERO DAYS (2016)
Directed by Alex Gibney.

The story of Stuxnet, a self-replicating computer malware, known as a “worm” for its ability to burrow from computer to computer on its own. The U.S.A. and Israel unleashed the virus to destroy a key part of an Iranian nuclear facility, and which ultimately spread beyond its intended target. It’s the most comprehensive accounting to date of how a clandestine mission hatched by two allies with clashing agendas opened forever the Pandora’s Box of cyber-warfare.
GOING CLEAR: SCIENTOLOGY AND THE PRISON OF BELIEF (2015)
Starring Lawrence Wright, Mike Rinder and Marty Rathbun. Directed by Alex Gibney.

An intimate profile of eight former members of the Church of Scientology, shining a light on how they attract true believers and the things they do in the name of religion.

THE ARMSTRONG LIE (2014)
Starring Lance Armstrong, Betsy Andreu, Frankie Andreu, Dan Coyle, George Hincapie, Bill Strickland and Jonathan Vaughters. Directed by Alex Gibney.

In 2009 Alex Gibney was hired to make a film about Lance Armstrong's comeback to cycling. The project was shelved when the doping scandal erupted, and re-opened after Armstrong's confession.

'The Armstrong Lie' picks up in 2013 and presents a riveting, insider's view of the unravelling of one of the most extraordinary stories in the history of sports. As Lance Armstrong himself says: "I didn't live a lot of lies, but I lived one big one."

REVIEWS The Armstrong Lie - How far the mighty fall

WE STEAL SECRETS: THE STORY OF WIKILEAKS (2013)
Directed by Alex Gibney.

A look at the creation of Julian Assange’s controversial website, which facilitated the largest security breach in U.S. history. Hailed by some as a free-speech hero and others as a traitor and terrorist, the enigmatic Assange’s rise and fall are paralleled with that of Pfc. Bradley Manning, the brilliant, troubled young soldier who downloaded hundreds of thousands of documents from classified U.S. military and diplomatic servers, revealing the behind-the-scenes workings of the government’s international diplomacy and military strategy.

MEA MAXIMA CULPA: SILENCE IN THE HOUSE OF GOD (2013)
Directed by Alex Gibney.

Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney exposes the abuse of power in the Catholic Church and a cover-up that winds its way from the row houses of Milwaukee Wisconsin, through the bare ruined choirs of Ireland’s churches all the way to the highest office of the Vatican. By investigating the secret crimes of a charismatic priest who abused over 200 deaf children in a school under his control – the film shows the face of evil that lurks behind the smiles and denials of authority figures and institutions who believe that because they stand for good they can do no wrong.

REVIEWS Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence In The House Of God

TOTALLY UNDER CONTROL
Directed by Alex Gibney, Ophelia Harutyunyan and Suzanne Hillinger.

At this moment over 200,000 Americans have died from COVID-19. From July 15 to August 31, the death toll was running at an average of 1,000 / day. That’s double the number of those who perished on 9/11 every week. The carelessly designed lockdowns and their long-lasting economic effects have led to massive job losses (23 million/14.7% in April), widespread hunger, dislocation, and a runaway federal deficit. Had the federal government done its job properly - by following clear guidelines in place based on past pandemics - most of the death and destruction could have been avoided. While the current administration makes its claims for a job well done, the fact is that the US response to COVID-19 is one of the worst, with 4% of the world’s population and 21% of the deaths.

How did this happen?

On January 20th, 2020 the US and South Korea both discovered their first cases of COVID-19. However, nine months later, the novel Coronavirus has claimed the lives of over 200,000 Americans and caused staggering economic damage, while in South Korea, there were no significant lockdowns and, in an urbanized population of 51 million, only 344 lives have been lost. Where did we go wrong? As the presidential election nears, Americans are increasingly enraged by a lack of clear leadership, endemic political corruption and left to wonder how did the wealthiest and most powerful country in the world manage to fail so thoroughly in its response to a global pandemic?
