Title: Citizenfour

I intend to see it once it's on streaming.

Though superlatives can mischaracterize any movie?s qualities, it is not an overstatement, I think, to call ?Citizenfour,? Laura Poitras? film about Edward Snowden, the movie of the century (to date).

That statement is meant, first off, to suggest certain things about its relation to our collective past, present and future. No film so boldly X-rays certain crucial changes wrought upon the world, and especially America and its government, by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. 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.
