Movie Review: Snowden


Edward Snowden (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) fighting for his country in Oliver Stone’s Snowden (Source: IMDb)

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is becoming one of the best character actors working today. His portrayal as whistleblower Edward Snowden is pitch-perfect—from his cadence to his posture. Known for casting some familiar faces, Oliver Stone directs a wonderful cast including Shailene Woodley, Zachary Quinto, Melissa Leo, Tom Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans, and Nicolas Cage (welcome back to the mainstream!). Despite the redundant subplots and it can drag at times, Stone plays Snowden safe, but he certainly brings something engaging to the table.

Is Snowden a patriot or a traitor? It’s up to you to decide.
