Oh, Oliver Stone. You’ve never once strayed from your signature bloated directing style. “Snowden” was pretty much what I expected: an overly long, boring, visually pompous, clumsily constructed, yet well acted retelling of the story of the whistleblowing government employee who, after leaking classified documents regarding a secret NSA mass surveillance program, is accused of espionage. 819 more words

Snowden is the latest from classic film director Oliver Stone. Yes, it is kind of a biographical character study of Mr. Snowden. But it is also a thriller of sorts, and a romance, and … a film that poses the questions about whether or not Snowden is a heroic whistle-blower or a traitor. 818 more words
