Citizenfour is an Oscar-winning documentary about the American government's systemic violation of privacy rights, its covering up of war crimes, and how such malfeasance was brought to light by former CIA employee Edward Snowden. A trio of journalists, essentially hand-picked by Snowden through encrypted emails, meet with him in a hotel room in Hong Kong for a series of in-depth interviews full of shocking revelations.
