An intriguing risk reaching for but never quite grasping the rewards it seeks, just like everything it captures

Risk doesn't concern itself overly with the history or role played by WikiLeaks, but rather with the man at the centre.

An interesting if rather unfocused documentary by Laura Poitras.

"Risk" makes a case that character is stronger than idealism or ideology - that who you are will always trump what you hope to achieve.

Poitras captures all of this in images that shimmer with clarity and precision. There's something wonderfully clear-eyed about Risk, even as the questions and moods it ignites are murky and unsettling.

Risk brings an odd lack of focus to Poitras's dour exercise, made no more convincing by her flat voice-over interjections.

The most salient feature of Risk is how Poitras remains non-judgmental throughout.

Despite taking a year to recut the film following its Cannes premiere in 2016, it's not apparent Poitras and co-editor Melody London found 'the film' at all.

There's no doubt that the world needs more iconoclasts, whistle-blowers and anti-authoritarian rabble-rousers. But it deserves better than Julian Assange.

We may not get a perfect documentary with Risk, but at least we get a very real and truthful sense of just how hard these kinds of movies are to make.
