The critics agree: The Fifth Estate is more powerful and important than a WikiLeak!
Henry Fitzherbert of The Daily Express calls the film “a fantastic yarn.”
Ian Gilchrist at HeyUGuys writes that The Fifth Estate is able to “rise above the pedestrian in its dramatisation of key events in the first revolutionary media shift of the modern era.” Wow! Sounds like an important film.
Drew McWeeny of HitFix thinks The Fifth Estate is “the strongest, clearest” film of the year.
The A.V. Club’s Ben Kenigsberg describes the movie “as insanely erotic as advertised.” Sold!
The Indepedent’s Kaleem Aftab believes The Fifth Estate is “a masterclass” in filmmaking.
