By far the biggest story of U.S. government malfeasance was uncoveredin 2013, when a young man named Edward Snowden leaked out to the mediaand the world at large that his employers at the National SecurityAgency and the Central Intelligence Agency, besides spying on othercountries, and terrorist organizations around the world, were alsospying on all the electronic communications of everybody in the UnitedStates itself. These revelations made him a man without a country, anda fugitive charged under the Espionage Act of 1917 for allegedlyrevealing classified information that compromised the security and thelives of U.S. surveillance agents all over the world. It also made himperhaps the most dangerous whistleblower of government overreach inhistory, or at least since Daniel Ellsberg. And unsurprisingly, it wasOliver Stone, the director best known for his critiques of Americanpolitical behavior with PLATOON, BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY, JFK, andNIXON, who stepped into the breach of this, maybe the most importantpolitical story of our time, with SNOWDEN.

Based on Luke Harding's book "The Snowden Files" and AnatolyKucherena's book "Time Of The Octopus", SNOWDEN stars JosephGordon-Leavitt as a young man who, both as an intellectual conservativeand a patriot, worked his way up into the highest circles of the U.S.intelligence community during the first decade of the 21st century andthe War On Terror, which involved less about stopping terrorism withmilitary force but with the force of electronics and surveillance. Thisseems all good and fine to him, and he develops further programs toassist the intelligence community…until, as he looks up the data, twiceas many communications have been monitored from within the U.S. itselfas have been from even our most feared legitimate adversary, Russia.Much of the story is told in flashbacks and flash-forwards, asGordon-Leavitt relates his story to documentary filmmaker Laura Poitros(Melissa Leo), journalist Glenn Greenwald (Zachary Quinto), andjournalist Ewan MacAskill (Tom Wilkinson) in a hotel in Hong Kong(later detailed by the real-life Laura Poitros in her Oscar-winning2014 documentary CITIZENFOUR). We see how his life, especially with hisgirlfriend (Shailene Woodley) and his problems with epilepsy, comesunwound, and how he must go on the run after his revelations arepublished in the British newspaper The Guardian, which Greenwald andMacAskill worked for. He winds up at Moscow International Airport justa few days after his story hits the Internet in June 2013, and inexile, a fugitive from what passes for American justice in the 21stcentury.

Rather surprisingly, given his penchant for doing extremelycontroversial movies in his career, Stone was initially fairlyreluctant to touch the Edward Snowden story in any way, shape, or form.But Kucherena (Snowden's real-life attorney in Russia) and Greenwaldthemselves convinced that it would be good for him to detail the story.Stone then agreed to do it, with Fitzgerald assisting him in thewriting of the screenplay, and the result is one of the great films of2016. Gordon-Leavitt is a near dead-ringer for the real-life EdwardSnowden, who is seen at the end of the film detailing why he did whathe did and why coming back to America would not result in his getting afair trial. Although Stone had been well-known for doing films withquick-edged MTV-inspired montage sequences, including his notorious1994 film NATURAL BORN KILLERS, he avoids doing much of that inSNOWDEN, instead concentrating on the inner workings of Snowden's work,and how much harm he may have been creating in the name of NationalSecurity, as opposed to merely keeping us "safe" from any more9/11-type terrorism.

The subject matter that is broached by Stone in SNOWDEN, even with arelatively limited amount of violence and nudity (compared to otherfilms of Stone's), is not easy to watch; nor is it necessarily easy tograsp in a lot of ways how the American people themselves, in the panicthat followed September 11, 2001, basically acquiesced and allowed suchmass surveillance to take place. Given the revelations in the early1970s about Ellsberg's Pentagon Papers scandal, and those involving theFBI's Counterintelligence Program against anti-war protesters and civilrights activists, one might have thought that the people would havelearned. But speaking truth against government power is a dangerousthing to do, and at the same time the right one; and SNOWDEN, itssubject, and its maker, show it better than perhaps anyone else inHollywood could ever do.

It's a great Oliver stone movie, seems right up his alley to do a filmAbout a conspiracy and about questioning the government.

It's weird when people do movies about such recent events but heythat's how fast the media works these days.

It's a great ensemble cast as Stone tells the story of Edward Snowdenwho discovered that the government was spying on us weather we didanything wrong or not and decides to let us all know.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Snowden as a very likable guy, even if hewas a Bush supporter, but most importantly he was a dude who loves hiscountry and felt what they were doing to its citizens was wrong.

As Snowden, Levitt had the biggest chunk of screen time in a filmfilled with well know actors taking small, but important roles, likeZachary Quinto who played the guardian journalist chosen to tellSnowden's story and Nicolas Cage who's character acted like a mentorfor Snowden's at the CIA.

Stone's fairness to the whole situation is painting a lovely portraitof the whistle blower himself

Very well made movie, very well acted, and directed.

Going in I was worried that the movie would turn into an actionthriller or a love story that would cloud what really happened.

I was pleasantly surprised to find a step by step account of realevents with a deep look at what goes on behind the scenes at thevarious spy agencies.

Personally I would have liked a little more time spent on thepoliticians (and other behind the scenes players) and how they actedbefore and after the Snowden revelations, but maybe that's a topic foranother movie…

I would recommend this movie to anyone interested in modern history andgeopolitics…
