Alex Gibney is hardly the one to "dig up" the cyberwar scare. There have been numerous documentaries on PBS about it. They have discussed Stuxnet at length.
This topic per se is not just an outrage movie - it's about life now.
While online data leaks affects consumers, businesses are now incredibly concerned about cybersecurity both for their customers as well as protecting their proprietary info. The utility industry is paranoid (but should be more so) about infrastructure attacks.
Janet Yellen, head of the Federal Reserve has already called cybersecurity the number one threat to the U.S. economy.
This is all far more important than the Repblican witch hunt on Hillary's email server.

The Bangladesh Bank attack threatened to create havoc in all of the world's banks, and we do not really know yet who the attacker is.

We weren't the first to launch an attack and we won't be the last (with Stuxnet)...
I saw this last weekend based on this review; the movie was a funny and enjoyable time. Great for dates!
