Reviews:
"Edward Snowden, when we see him at the beginning of Laura Poitras' twisting corkscrew of a documentary, is remarkably calm despite the fact that his life as he knows it is over." -- Grade: B+ - 10/31/2014 Entertainment Weekly


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[T]his potent and profound documentary that bears cinematic witness to history with the actual participants....CITIZENFOUR is a wake-up call that hits you like a cold slap in the face." - 10/24/2014 Rolling Stone
