THE ABSURD TIMES

Well that settles that!

Pardon my Snowden
By
Warum Nicht
We really don’t have to go into a great deal here, but the film is opening in so many places today, Friday, so here is the entire story.

Just one comment: Snowden did nothing to tell us anything – he just proved what we all already knew. Just look back at the 1998 film ENEMY OF THE STATE, before 9/11 made all this more "acceptable".

Here is a longish interview with Oliver Stone, and a bunch of others on it. It had to be filmed in Germany, of course.
As the much-anticipated movie "Snowden," about one of the most wanted men in the world, hits theaters, we spend the hour with its director, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone, and the actor who played Snowden, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and feature clips from the film that tells the story of how NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden exposed massive surveillance programs by U.S. and British intelligence agencies. "Our goal was to humanize the man, to bring you … the feeling of his life," Stone says of Snowden, who he notes was originally politically conservative and tried to enlist in the military to serve in Iraq but joined the CIA instead.
