Cumberbatch ignores the criticisms of the script laid out by Assange. Specifically, he avoids addressing whether the script was changed at all from the version Assange had, and what his contribution, if any, was to making script changes. This is dancing around the substance and pushing a lot of PR styled flak in support of the film (hired gun style).

Letter

“The Fifth Estate is a powerful, if dramatized, entry point for a discussion about this extraordinary lurch forward in our society.”

Delusions of grandeur?  An “entry point?”  So people have no idea what Wikileaks is and need his movie to get up to speeed?
