Vores mening

With Citizenfour Laura Poitras captured lightning in a bottle when whistleblower Edward Snowden reached out to her to share his case against the NSA and the state of mass surveillance. Six years have past and yet the imperative issues this brave film challenges remain. An exemplary political film.

This is the first movie I’ve seen since All the President’s Men — in its own way, also very much about surveillance and corruption — that takes stock of a current political event as it roils and ripples out, leaving its audience with a heavy, sick feeling.

No film so boldly X-rays certain crucial changes wrought upon the world, and especially America and its government, by the attacks of 9/11. No film so demands to be seen by every sentient person who values his or her own freedom and privacy. No film so clearly implies actions that need to be taken to prevent the 21st century from turning into an Orwellian nightmare in which technologically-enabled tyranny is absolute and true political liberty, for all intents and purposes, nonexistent.

To watch the footage Poitras shot for the next week of Snowden in his cramped quarters at the Mira—incidents that constitute the middle of Citizenfour and make up roughly half its 114 minutes—is to have the extraordinary, dizzying experience of witnessing a man in the final moments of his anonymity before he changed the course of history and, in the process, became this country’s most wanted fugitive.
