Wasp Network ★★★½

While Wasp Network is decent enough political thriller, it does have the problem of trying to fit nearly a decades’ worth of events into 125 minutes running time. This results in some plotlines and characters, particularly Ana de Armas’ Ana Margarita, to get lost in the shuffle. In retrospect, Olivier Assayas should have gone a similar route as Carlos and make Wasp Network into 5+ hour film/miniseries. However, that doesn’t mean that the film isn’t still worth checking out in its current form.
