Snowden – A Review


Some stories are too compelling in reality to avoid telling in a Hollywood film. Last weekend, Clint Eastwood attempted this with Sully, to mixed results, which we elaborate on in our review. Joseph Gordon-Levitt himself tried this last year in Robert Zemeckis‘s The Walk, which was a biographical film about French high-wire artist Philippe Petit’s titular walk between the two World Trade Center towers. However, The Walk already had a superior documentary on which it was based, titled Man On Wire. This precedent unfortunately continues with Oliver Stone‘s Snowden.
