Episode 83 – Hell or High Water & Snowden

Posted on

Spoiler-free! In episode 83, we take a detour into the dark and disturbing underbelly of the America psyche with two powerful films. David Mackenzie’s Hell or High Water (Chris Pine, Jeff Bridges, Ben Foster, Gil Birmingham) takes us through the backroads of Texas and the growing divide between corporate interests and the will of the people. Oliver Stone’s Snowden (Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shailene Woodley, Zachary Quinto, Nicholas Cage) raises similar questions about the abuses of power and privacy perpetrated by the US government own their people. (A special “Hello” to our good friends at all of the intelligence gathering agencies reading this post! Hope you have a great day!)  So….how fucked are we? Come join the circle and find out in episode 83 of The Smoking Screen Podcast!
