Snowden Courtesy Position Papers

Edward Snowden is a traitor for some and a hero for some. The biggest leak since Julian Assange’s WikiLeaks, Snowden caused more damage or not?

SNOWDEN has been directed by Oliver Stone who is known for the Michael Douglas starrer Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and Anthony Hopkins in and as Nixon. Thus, his track record to tackle controversial and political work is not new. But his presentation of Snowden was definitely new.

If you want to know the back story, the everyday challenges, the relationship dilemma and the boy who became a man and then a fugitive then you need to watch this film.

Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt is known for his good looks especially in the film Don Jon and then stepped into big shoes of being Robert Lincoln in Lincoln and when he played the real life tight rope challenger Philippe Petit in The Walk he proved his prowess. That is until you see SNOWDEN, Joseph is at an Oscar performance with this role.

Supporting him is Shailene Woodley as Lindsay Mills (Snowden’s girlfriend) and Rhys Ifans as Corbin O’Brian (CIA).

Snowden is a must watch because while it looks like a documentary and a fictitious Hollywood drama, it is real, it happened and he is still stuck in Moscow.
