Tonight is your last chance to catch Citizenfour, the winner of Best Documentary Feature at last Sunday's Academy Awards presentation. Now is your chance to be the judge.
 
In January 2013, filmmaker Laura Poitras was in the process of constructing a film about abuses of national security in post-9/11 America when she started receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as “citizen four,” who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by the NSA and other intelligence agencies. In June 2013, she and reporter Glenn Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. She brought her camera with her. 

 
Director: Laura Poitras
 
What the critics are saying:

Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes
"Part real-life thriller, part sobering examination of 21st century civil liberties, Citizenfour transcends ideology to offer riveting, must-see cinema."

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Liam Lacey

The documentary of the year may also be its most hair-raising thriller. 

Boston Globe
Ty Burr

Citzenfour is prosaic in its presentation and profoundly chilling in its details, and if you think Snowden is a traitor, you should probably see it. If you think he’s a hero, you should probably see it. If you haven’t made up your mind — well, you get the idea

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).
