The script is based on the books The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World's Most Wanted Man by Luke Harding and Time of the Octopus by Anatoly Kucherena.

So this past weekend I finally watched SNOWDEN. My feeling on the film compared to the content in the film seems to be sending my different direction, but lets start with the film itself. I felt the direction of the film was dealt with an entertaining and dramatic manner. I mean with Oliver Stone as director I felt did a great job. My issue with the film is I wished simply that it were a bit more enthralling visually. This leads me to the content of the story, which based on true to life events is where I feel I got lost. Understanding that all these secretive agencies exist was just mind-blowing and not just that, but a level of scary definitely was involved. So when you put the real life factoring mixed with a well-developed way to tell this story I give SNOWDEN 3 stars.
