SNOWDEN stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and is written and directed by Oliver Stone. The script is based on the books The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World's Most Wanted Man by Luke Harding and Time of the Octopus by Anatoly Kucherena. Written by
Open Road Films
During the flashback Basic Training scene at Ft Benning, Snowden, along with the other soldiers, repeatedly call their Drill Sgt "SIR". Drill Sgt is an NCO, and therefore NOT a sir. While many new recruits make this mistake once, this fact is drilled into your brain within minutes of arriving, and then repeated over and over to new recruits. The Drill Sgt took no notice of it, an obvious error by someone who has never served in the military. See more »
Excellent movie, well worth the price of admission.
Very well made movie, very well acted, and directed.
Going in I was worried that the movie would turn into an action thriller or a love story that would cloud what really happened.
I was pleasantly surprised to find a step by step account of real events with a deep look at what goes on behind the scenes at the various spy agencies.
Personally I would have liked a little more time spent on the politicians (and other behind the scenes players) and how they acted before and after the Snowden revelations, but maybe that's a topic for another movie
I would recommend this movie to anyone interested in modern history and geopolitics
