This gripping, Oscar-nominated documentary tells the inside story of Daniel Ellsberg's famous leaking of the Pentagon Papers in 1971, severely damaging the federal government's narrative of the Vietnam War. This is a thorough, important history and civics lesson about a Pentagon insider's Road to Damascus moment along the path to anti-war activist. There's more than an air of self-aggrandizement within Ellsberg's incessant narration. But, it is exactly that chutzpah that motivated Ellsberg to once — and still — believe he alone possessed the ability to change the course of world events. Co-directors Judith Ehrlich and Rick Goldsmith essentially present a first-person, well-earned hagiography that is a must-see for, if nothing else, its incorporation of Oval Office audio recordings of an increasingly unhinged Richard Nixon and his inner circle of advisors trying to manage an unmanageable war, a dogged press and an unrelenting whistleblower.
