  • Directed by: Laura Poitras

Documentary about Edward Snowden, former employee of the US National Security Agency, who revealed how the US government is illegally collecting information from virtually everyone. Even at 113 minutes there's a sense that there's more to this story than can be told, but it's still a sobering look at what the American government is doing in the name of security.

  • Directed by: Roberts Gannaway
  • Cast: Dane Cook, Ed Harris, Julie Bowen

When perky aeroplane Dusty (Cook) is forced to give up racing, he decides to retrain as a firefighter under crusty-but-fair Blade Ranger (Harris). Gannaway's sequel is better than the dismal original, but even as simple-minded entertainment it's a pity about the sexual and racial stereotyping and broad, male-orientated humour.
