A shocking and sobering documentary that unfolds in real time and plays like a conspiracy thriller. One of the most intense film-going experiences in years, Citizenfour follows documentarian Laura Poitras as she received encrypted emails from Citizen Four: The man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. Poitras was not only able to make a great documentary, she was able to capture history in her interviews with the man.
