Highly Suspect Reviews: Snowden

0 Submitted by on Thu, 15 September 2016, 10:59

Edward Snowden has been a hot button name for controversy and debate since this former CIA employee turned over sensitive data to the press about the degree to which the American government was actively and regularly spying on their own people. No wonder Oliver Stone wanted to make a movie about him.

Here, Joseph Gordon-Levitt takes on the titular role, and a voice affection that doesn’t seem entirely called for, is this attempt to make the story of this man’s life, and the reasons he did what he did, understandable. Frank and Chris get into it deep. Be prepared: this is indeed a very opinionated review not just of the film but of the Snowden controversy in general. And not just about Jo-Jo-Levy’s acting choices.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
