Citizenfour

Citizenfour

Laura Poitras

With some brief exceptions, it appeared as if it would be easier to meet Edward Snowden in person than to actually find «Citizenfour», the now Oscar-winning documentary about him, online. I’ve been lucky to see it, but didn’t want to recommend something so hard to get hold of. Now that the film is coming to theatres across the globe, it’s time to tell you to go watch it. «Citizenfour» is a close, sometimes even intimate account of an extraordinary man and a great look behind the scenes of the biggest journalistic story in many years.
