1971 ★★★★

This documentary tells the heretofore untold story of the 1971 document heist of the FBI office at Media, PA. The perps were never caught; but 44 years later, five survivors of the nine people involved have decided to tell their story in this film. It's actually fascinating and well told through interviews, stock footage and re-creations. Before Watergate, before the Pentagon Papers, before Edward Snowden, these stolen documents proving ongoing, illegal surveillance by the FBI had a huge impact on the national scene. The film plays like a true-life thriller; and the document thieves, now elderly or dead, are unsung heroes of that trouble plagued era.
