So I watched "The Fifth Estate" last night.

I thought it was quite good.  It certainly held my interest.  Although a part of that was surely because of the amazing charisma of BC’s performance.  The (many) reviews that talked about the film as mostly a showcase for his talent sure weren’t kidding.  I’ve seen him in a bunch of roles now and every time I’m amazed again.  There is nothing of previous roles or himself in Assange.  He’s simultaneously magnetic and repulsive and sexy and gross and evil and benevolent and it’s just…gah. 

*shakes fist*  CUMBERBATCH.
