Mark Kermode is one of the UK’s most respected film reviewers, and is co-host of ‘the BBC’s flagship movie podcast,’ Kermode and Mayo’s Film Review (aka Wittertainment).

CITIZENFOUR is a new documentary by renowned filmmaker Laura Poitras (until now most famous for her 2006 film My Country, My Country about life for Iraqis under U.S. occupation) about NSA contractor turned whistleblower Edward Snowden.

The documentary centers on Poitras and Glenn Greenwald grilling Snowden in a Hong Kong hotel room, and is by all accounts both gripping and an intimate portrayal of a highly principled man.

The Film premiered at the New York Film Festival on October 17, and we can’t wait to watch what promises to be a  very insightful and exciting piece of film making.

(p.s. And hello to Jason Issacs).
