Do you like spies? Do you like Academy Award-winning movies? Then you’ll love Citizenfour, the documentary about Edward Snowden that is now streaming online — legally — for free!

Directed by Laura Poitras, the film takes you behind the scenes of one of the biggest intelligence leaks in history. The title refers to the alias Snowden used when he first reached out to Poitras with a huge cache of top secret NSA documents, a detail that hints at exactly how close Poitras was to legendary whistleblower. And while Snowden himself remains a controversial figure, the documentary does an exquisite job telling a world-changing story. You should watch it right now at Thought Maybe.
