Snowden


Had thought that I wanted to see this movie....until I watched the trailer.  Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Snowden?  Seriously?!  I don't know if I can do it now.  Watch another of these Jewish Brat-Pack actors on the big screen, that is.  What was Olive Stone thinking?  Talk about creating something that could have been substantive and is instead wince-inducing crap.  Yes, all just because of this poor casting decision.  

And let's get to the heart of it: why is Stone creating this movie at all?  Didn't we all get to see, in stunning firsthand, Snowden's actual revelation in Hong Kong with Laura Poitras's "CitizenFour"?  I don't get it, honestly.  Somehow it just feels like Stone's trying desperately to still be the life of the Edgy Film Party.  Although other filmmakers (that is, Poitras!) have clearly edged him out of this position.

After this movie and the weak "W", he's really just standing on the fringes.
