5 Information Age Icons Who Should Have Their Own Movie


This week Snowden is released, continuing a popular trend in Hollywood films that focuses specifically on the people who make the Information Age a media firestorm. Edward Snowden is perhaps the most popular one, Citizenfour made him a household name, Snowden (starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is bound to make him a legacy. Depicting icons of the Information Age has become a popular way to explore topics of the modern world. In The Social Network (2010), David Fincher made a film of lost human connection in a digitally connected world. The Fifth Estate (2013) sought to de-mythologize one of the Information Age’s most controversial personalities. Steve Jobs (2015) explored three timeframes of a man’s life to highlight both a personal growth and digital evolution. These are five stories of the Information Age that Hollywood has still yet to tell.

His love for the cinema runs deep and he is constantly trying to find new ways to engage and approach films (because films are constantly trying to find new ways to engage and approach people). He does this mainly through film criticism, which he sees as both a hobby and a crucial link between movies and those who want to understand them a little more.
