Although Gibney’s topics are among the heaviest one can pursue, his movies aren’t all doom and gloom. In one scene in “We Steal Secrets,” a message Manning sends details how he downloaded documents onto a burnable CD that had a Lady Gaga label on it. The scene illustrates information moving through cyberspace to the sounds of “Telephone,” one of Lady Gaga’s most popular songs.
