Quite a mess
20 June 2020 | by Sir_AmirSyarifSee all my reviews

Olivier Assayas' 'Wasp Network' had the opportunity for substantial dramatic material with its fascinating based-on-a-true-story plot and a star-studded cast. Unfortunately, the story is so jam-packed with various narratives and characters it becomes convoluted, confusing, and tiring to watch. Quite a mess.
