The 5th Eye

Directed by Errol Wright and Abbi King-Jones

This densely packed doco from the directors of Operation 8 questions the price of New Zealand’s involvement in the Five Eyes intelligence alliance, and relates the improbable tale of its 2008 sabotage by the Waihopai Three.

    A Priest, a teacher and a farmer visit a spy base, you wouldn't expect what happens next.

  • ★★★★ review by Dan Slevin on Letterboxd

    “Like real life, the film loses momentum and focus during a diversion into Kim Dotcom’s infamous “Moment of Truth” event prior to the 2014 election, although in general the weaving of the various strands is done with admirable clarity.”

    Caused quite the spirited discussion afterwards between me and my lovely wife, and that doesn't always happen.
