When Lindsey Mills and Edward Snowden message one another in a dating site with references the classic anime "Ghost in The Shell" which has parallels to this film. Both stories deal with former soldiers turned government officials whose entire lives are based around computers, and the moral problems that result from their work. See more »
Snowden asks Hank Forrester in their first meeting "Is that a Cray-1?" which Hank acknowledges. The computer that Snowden points to is in fact (part of) a Cray-2. See more »
I know he won best picture for platoon - which also was a serious endeavour - but its behind us.
Vietnam is over, Vietnam is done.
Snowden lives. Actually, Snowden escaped and survived.
He went to what might be the only place people can be protected from US government agencies. I would like to think all whistle blowers would have to do is cross into Canada but then Snowden would know. He was smart - he is smart.
I remember Bambi Bembenek. She blew a whistle too and made it to Canada. Poor thing.
This is a must see for all except those that don't care their protection set forth by the founders of the United States can be taken away by bullies, perhaps corrupted by limitless power of a new industrialized intelligence complex.
Masterful work by Oliver Stone.
Thanks for bringing it to Tiff.
Oliver, please ask for a theatre more appropriate for Q&A for Snowden 2.0
