“Snowden” has problems, and it starts with director Oliver Stone. The controversial, three time Oscar winner hasn’t really made a good film since 1995’s “Nixon” (ironically the last time he was nominated).

Still his former clout means something, as he boasts an impressive cast roster. His last decade of films “W.” (too soon), “World Trade Center” (way too soon), “Alexander” (a disaster) and the sequel to his 1987 “Wall Street” proved he is completely out of touch with what modern audiences want in a cinematic experience. “Snowden” also fails, as it doesn’t offer anything we don’t already know following numerous documentaries, articles, and interviews.
