From Daniel Ellsberg's website:
The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers Premieres in the US This Week

by Michael Ellsberg on September 16, 2009

The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers premieres in the US today, 9/16/09 at Film Forum in NYC (it will remain at Film Forum for a 2-week run)

It premieres in LA on 9/23/09 here.

Heres what the press is saying:

New York magazine: his story changed the world. Im ashamed to admit I knew so little about Ellsberg. . . . he movie offers one revelatory interview after another mixed with reenactments (animated) that have fun with the caper-movie aspect and build real suspense. . . . We have not celebrated Daniel Ellsberg enough. Lets begin.

Variety: Crams a wealth of material in 90 minutes without losing clarity or momentum. Fascinating for those who lived through the controversy and those for whom the incident rings only the faintest of bells. . . . Must-see. . .

New York Post: THE most exciting thriller Ive seen in a while contains nary a car chase and doesnt feature Will Smith. . . . is as powerful as anything Hollywood can throw at us.

New York Times: learly told and persuasive. . . . theres still sufficient drama in the details to keep you hooked. . . . emerges as a complex and difficult man whose principles, whether you agree with them or not, cant be denied.

New Yorker: hronicles a kind of secular spiritual journey. . . . Ellsberg himself, now in his late seventies, describes the stages of his transformation with his usual precision and ardor.

Entertainment Weekly: When you see the gripping documentary The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers, you realize that the saga of the Pentagon Papers may be every bit the equal of Watergate in its moral urgency and almost seismic drama. . . . Whats really shocking, though, is that Hollywood never made a movie out of this one.

Below is the directors blurb about the film.

Enjoy!
