Incredible story about a Cuban spy network
6 July 2020 | by dhunjiwadiaSee all my reviews

#WaspNetwork on Netflix - Don't go by the ratings here. Most would be politically motivated. The bad reviews are about the politics of the film and little to do about the merits of cinema. It's not supposed to be a documentary, but it's an incredible story about a Cuban spy network. Could have been a serial as there is so much narrative to explore. Yet they've packed everything into a movie which is a tall order. Wonderful performances from Penelope Cruz, Edgar Ramirez and Wagner Maura. Leaving political opinion aside it's a worthwhile watch.
