Documentary about Edward Snowden and the US surveillance programs. It was an interesting film and interesting to see Snowden speak himself about why he decided to leak. It was clearly a difficult and extremely thoughtful choice that he went into knowing the potential consequences.
I’d seen ‘Snowden’ the drama film and I couldn’t help comparing it to that. I think ‘Snowden’ is significantly better. It gives more context about Snowden, shows more about the surveillance programs, and just tells a better story overall.
3 stars. (This is purely compared to ‘Snowden’. I’d say see ‘Snowden’ instead. On it’s own it would be 4 stars.)
