Reviews:

Though superlatives can mischaracterize any movie’s qualities, it is not an overstatement, I think, to call “Citizenfour,” Laura Poitras’ film about Edward Snowden, the movie of the century (to date).

Edward Snowden is both the ghost and the hero of Laura Poitras’s documentary about blowing the whistle on the spooks at NSA

Bombshell documentary brings Edward Snowden into sharper focus.

    The NYT Magazine ran a jaw-dropping and rather lengthy but nicely in-depth article about Poitras’ and Snowden’s collaboration.

    Interesting tidbit, as an example of what she/they went through: She moved her residence to Berlin during editing of the footage to avoid the FBI suddenly showing up with warrants and absconding with her work.

    As you can see from this article, much of the work which is critical of Amerika’s “security” infrastructure must be done offshore simply to be allowed to exist. This tells us a lot.
