Being a writer in a content economy, it's easy to kind of delude yourself into thinking "I can writing about anything!" I mean, research is one thing. But also, it doesn't hurt to feel some tipe of personal investment sometimes, especially when tasked with writing a thinkpiece/review of Oliver Stone's Snowden. As a movie, it is easy to dismiss and when considered alongside Laura Poitras' Citizenfour, its cultural significance becomes far more slippery. All of which is to say I found this piece sincerely challenging to write, primarily because living in a post-Snowden era speaks to a shared anxiety or paranoia we now as a society share. Heavy stuff if you ask me, which they did so check out my thoughts over at Tribes!
