Steve Jobs takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution, to paint a portrait of the man at its epicenter. The story unfolds backstage at three iconic product launches, ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac.
During the Cold War, an American lawyer is recruited to defend an arrested Soviet spy in court, and then help the CIA facilitate an exchange of the spy for the Soviet captured American U2 spy plane pilot, Francis Gary Powers.

During the film shoot in Germany, Oliver Stone's mother died. Taking the necessary time off would have left the production unable to complete the film within its budget and schedule, so Stone missed her funeral. See more »
During the flashback Basic Training scene at Ft Benning, Snowden, along with the other soldiers, repeatedly call their Drill Sgt "SIR". Drill Sgt is an NCO, and therefore NOT a sir. While many new recruits make this mistake once, this fact is drilled into your brain within minutes of arriving, and then repeated over and over to new recruits. The Drill Sgt took no notice of it, an obvious error by someone who has never served in the military. See more »
I don't understand people that complain about this movie.
There is zero to complain about in this movie. You got to wonder if the low reviews are government paid employees or just Oliver Stone haters.
I couldn't keep my eyes off the screen. I was mesmerized from the beginning of the film until the end. I honestly had no idea it ran two hours and 20 minutes. A movie is never too long if you don't look at your phone and check the time. Myself, nor did anyone in the theater once look down at their phone. The movie had great cinematography, excellent pacing, strong emotional dialogue, and solid character/relationship arcs. You can't ask for much more of a drama based on a true story. Excellent job Oliver. Welcome back!
The truth is people don't want to hear it. If it doesn't directly affect their cozy iPhone streaming lives, than they don't want to hear about it. They don't want to hear that they are wage slaves. They don't want to hear that there is no such thing as privacy in this country. They don't want to hear that the government isn't a democracy. People don't want to hear that the American government isn't a government at all, and that it's been replaced by a multi-national fortunate 100 corporate conglomeration funded by the international banking cartel. People don't want to know the truth.
I'd venture a guess that most of the people that rated this movie poorly didn't even see the movie. These are the same people that can't handle the truth. Open your eyes people. Don't be another corporate wage slave.
