  1. Edward Snowden's Long, Strange Journey to Hollywood
    Oliver Stone wanted a hit -- and the chance to put America’s most iconic dissident onscreen. The subject wanted veto power. The Russian lawyer wanted someone to option the novel he'd written. The American lawyer just wanted the whole insane project to go away. Somehow a film got made.
    by Irina Eleksander. The New York Times Magazine, 30-Aug-2016.
