Snowden (2016)

by Niki Kefala

Director Oliver Stone, makes an interesting and a fascinating film despite feeling a little too safe at times. He takes the story and gives it a mainstream polish, bringing the issue home in a way that is understandable and urgent, even if his hero ends up seeming almost too good to be true. But it is a film that, in dramatic terms, doesn’t quite work very well and it is for sure, not the big return of the famous director that many wanted. It is films like this that make me question whether or not I ended up loving it or hating it, but in
general is a well-made movie that presents Snowden as a romantic and old fashioned hero.
