A young female FBI agent joins a secret CIA operation to take down a Mexican cartel boss.
Disturbing, at times exemplary thriller with a myriad of anxiety and some chilling understated performances. Its politics will irk some, for its outlook is bleak and its narrative too thin to carry the weight of its argumentation.
