About this movie

2014's Academy Award® winning documentary CITIZENFOUR is a real life international thriller that unfolds by the minute. With unprecedented access, this gripping behind-the-scenes chronicle follows award winning director Laura Poitras (My Country, My Country) and journalist Glenn Greenwald's remarkable encounters with whistle-blower Edward Snowden in a hotel room in Hong Kong, as he hands over classified documents that provide evidence of mass indiscriminate and illegal invasions of privacy by the National Security Agency (NSA). The documentary not only shows the dangers of governmental surveillance, but makes audiences feel them. After seeing the film, viewers will never think the same way about their phone, e-mail, credit cards, web browser or digital footprint again.

Update: It's BELOW "AVERAGE at Best." It's NOT at all what you think it's going to be about. Lot's of Double Speak and Wasting the "time on the CLOCK," just to make this Documentary. So Many FACTS Were Totally LEFT OUT of this "Citizenfour Documentary." If you just take a few minutes to look around on either "Bitchute or YouTube" you can watch this movie for 100% Free. But I definitely wouldn't waste your cash on it at all. 🙃

An important film to watch. Regardless of your opinion of his actions, it does educate the viewer of the technological capability the American government has, and uses. I personally think all Americans over 50 would learn a lot from this.
