Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Poitras' movie works even better as a horror picture -- perfect for Halloween week. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jan 5, 2015

Fresh: Citizenfour plays like a thriller as it chronicles a complex and vitally important chapter in our history. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Nov 13, 2014

Fresh: 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. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Oct 30, 2014

Fresh: A first-hand, up-close account of Snowden that allows us to meet and judge the man for ourselves. – Rafer Guzman, Newsday, Oct 30, 2014
