    I don’t have much to say other than I really enjoyed it.

    When the first still came out I was really excited for the film, then the trailer happened and I hated it and feared it would be Disneyfied a la Maleficent. Then the embargo lifted and I had hope again... turns out, it is Disneyfied, which is a shame cause I would have loved to have had the film portraying the journey of an actual unhinged villain.

    I’m a sucker for spy thrillers, so I’d been wanting to watch this for a while.

    It’s a movie that will be enjoyed most by fans of the genre I think.

    The one silver lining of the pandemic so far: The usually celebrated week of German cinema in Mexico City was moved online, with the films being available to everyone for free. I’m not in the capital at the moment, so I wouldn’t have been able to attend any screening, and now I have the complete selection at my disposal in filminlatino.

    Anyway, this film belongs to such selection. It leaves tomorrow, so I made it my mission to watch it…
