Both known and forgotten horror films of the 20th Century

Wow, was the first word out of my mouth when I first watched the film. Having not followed the story when it first took place, I was interested in seeing it to find exactly what the story was behind Edward Snowden, andwhy he blew the whistle on US government secrets. After having watched the film, I realize it took an insane amount of courage and conviction to do the things he did. While the film focused on the documents that were leaked, and explained in some detail what they were about it, however, also focused on how it affected the lives of the people who were involved. Snowden, Glenn Greenwald, and Laura Poitras lives will never be same, it will never be the same for the lives of their loved ones, and they will mostly likely never be able to return the place they once called home. I won't go into too much more details, as I don't feel comfortable clashing with other peoples political views, but I will say it was a movie I would see again, and highly recommend to anyone interested in this particular topic.
