Five cyber films of 2016

Zero Days:

Documentarian Alex Gibney offers a chilling account of the Stuxnet worm attack that temporarily sabotaged Iran's nuclear program, but also may have opened a Pandora's box, paving the way for future nation-sponsored cyberattacks against critical infrastructure.


 Director Oliver Stone and actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt combine forces to portray the life of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden – a traitor to some and a hero to others, after he leaked secret details of the U.S. government's electronic surveillance program.

Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World:

 Legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog consults with luminaries, such as Tesla CEO Elon Musk and famed hacker Kevin Mitnick, to gain a sense of how the internet, IoT technologies, AI and other technological advances are reshaping society and humanity.


 In the follow-up to her Snowden film Citizenfour, documentarian Laura Poitras gets inside access to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange from 2010-2013, closely following the controversial activist as he publishes his latest troves of private government documents, and ultimately seeks refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy.

Jason Bourne:

 Matt Damon returns as former government assassin and amnesiac Jason Bourne, who discovers a CIA operation designed to leverage a popular social media platform as a mass surveillance tool. Although its portrayal of hacking has come under criticism for a lack of authenticity, the film nonetheless examines important cyber concepts such as privacy, metadata collection, data leaks and cyberespionage.
