Director Laura Poitras made the best documentary I have seen in a long time. Hard to believe what I just saw is really happening in this century.
Laura started receiving anonymous encrypted e-mails from CitizenFour, who appeared to be Edward Snowden. He claims to have evidence of NSA spying on basically every US citizen and many countries abroad. Laura and journalist Glenn Greenwald fly over to Hong Kong to interview Snowden who is staying undercover in a hotel. Bit by bit they publish the information he is handing them. He has risked his life, his family and his own soul to (it seems very carefully) reveal the fact that these citizens are not safe for their own government.
What is happening to our freedom?
And a great song during the end credentials!
