IMDB: Snowden (2016) - IMDB
IMDB Rating: 7.4
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 6.4
It's the most important and galvanizing political drama by an American filmmaker in years.
New York Daily News -
You might not agree with Stone that the man is a hero, but you probably do want to see the film so you can compute what the whole uproar was about.
For a film that's so politically risky - Stone hasn't named names and pointed fingers (at both sides of the aisle, incidentally) in a mainstream movie like this for years - it's surprisingly safe aesthetically.
Screen International -
Stone's mixture of paranoid thriller, political commentary and romantic drama keeps Snowden feeling busy without ever being particularly engrossing or enlightening. Frustratingly, Snowden remains a ghost in the machine.
SNOWDEN stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and is written and directed by Oliver Stone. The script is based on the books The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World's Most Wanted Man by Luke Harding and Time of the Octopus by Anatoly Kucherena.
