Technology has a history of starring roles, but how much pans out?
Snowden, the new Oliver Stone movie about whistleblower/traitor/hero Edward Snowden’s journey from the Beltway to exile in Moscow, opened last month. Reviews were mixed and the film seemed to have fizzled fast.
Technology has often played a key role in big-budget flicks and scripted TV series. And it’s an artistic challenge. No matter how innovative you are, it is hard to make working at a computer look exciting.
Some succeeded better than others. Here, not in any particular order save the last one, are my favorite movies with tech in a starring role. I’d love to hear yours - #UBJFilmTech.
