Rapid Reviews | ‘Snowden’

He’s one of the most controversial figures in American history, but the question today isn’t whether Edward Snowden is a hero or a traitor, it’s whether he’s been the subject of a good movie, directed by Oliver Stone and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. You need to know and if you’re anything like the rest of us, you don’t have a lot of time, because life is hard and movie theater tickets cost a lot of money.

So is Snowden a great new drama, or is it a hack job? Join our illustrious film critic William Bibbiani as he gives you the rundown in Rapid Reviews, the weekly video series where we review films in just 60 short seconds. Need more details? You can read Bibbs’ full review of Snowden and you can also read his in-depth interview with Joseph Gordon-Levitt about making Snowden and what his revelations could mean for the future of the internet.

Check out the video below, and come back next Friday for an all-new Rapid Reviews!
