Laura Poitras is a documentarian who traveled to Hong Kong to film Edward Snowden as he spoke of his story. Citizen Four highlights Snowden's whistle-blowing on the US government in regards to internet survelence. In The film Snowden, Oliver Stone dramatizes this. Some see Snowden as a traitor, some see him as a hero. The fact that all of our communications are being monitored is disturbing. I really liked the way the film ended. It will be interesting to see if he ever returns to the US and if he ever stands trial. I thought this film was very well done and very interesting. Nice job.
