Wasp Network Review

French maestro Olivier Assayas did not cement his status as a cinephile favorite over the last quarter-century through the mechanics of his film’s plots. Rather, he’s become a festival darling because of the singular sensation left lingering from watching his work. What happens in an Assayas film is never as important as how it happens – the technique, the intellection, the panache.

Assayas must have had his reasons for taking on a project like Wasp Network, a tale of espionage and counterterrorism. Whatever they were, however, do not come through clearly. The film offers few pleasures beyond the crossing of wires in its tale of tangled alliances in post-Cold War Cuba. Assayas becomes so subservient to the sheer volume of events and information he must bring to life that the film completely subsumes any sense of personal style or voice. The producers could have put any workman studio director’s name over the closing credits, and I would not have bat an eyelid.

Bright trailer

David Ayer is no stranger to depicting cops on film. He’s made some good, gritty and dirty crime thrillers with End of Watch and Street Kings. Cops and Los Angeles fit comfortably in the filmmaker’s wheelhouse. It’s a world and genre he knows well. Ayer has now made another cop movie, Bright, which stars Will Smith and Joel Edgerton. They’re playing partners, but they’re a little different from the partners from Ayer’s previous movies: one of these is an orc. A hard-edged David Ayer movie with Will Smith, orcs, and fairies sounds like a blast, and it looks like one, too.

Below, watch the Bright trailer.
