‘Snowden’

snowden-movie-posterA riveting piece of political whistleblowing that goes hand-in-hand with the 2014 documentary, Citizenfour.

Illegal covert surveillance programmes run by the NSA in collaboration with other intelligence agencies worldwide were exposed by one of their own – Edward Snowden. Played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception, The Dark Knight Rises), the cyber expert’s backstory from military reject to the world’s most wanted man is told without the usual MTV-inspired flourishes associated with director Oliver Stone (Platoon, Wall Street). And it’s the better for it.
