 filmmaker Alex Gibney

Alex Gibney (born October 23, 1953) is an American documentary film director and producer. In 2010, Esquire magazine said Gibney "is becoming the most important documentarian of our time".


His works as director include Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room (nominated in 2005 for Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature); Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer (short-listed in 2011 for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature); Casino Jack and the United States of money; and Taxi to the Dark Side (winner of the 2007 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature), focusing on an innocent taxi driver in Afghanistan who was tortured and killed at Bagram Air Force Base in 2002.



In 2013 Alex Gibney released a film about Wikileaks, Julian Assange and Bradley Manning, "We Steal secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks". Wikileaks asserts that the film is rife with factual errors and misrepresentations. The Wikileaks criticism of the film begins with the very title, as Wikileaks denies that it does, in fact, "steal secrets", and its criticism of the film continues with a long list of what it claims are falsehoods and misrepresentations made by the film.
