Critic Reviews for The Assistant
The Assistant isn't about empowerment (that's a task for other filmmakers), but presents a cruel, unvarnished reality.
There is a through-line in terms of theme, and Green has made only good choices here. The film is tautly constructed, able to be shot largely in one place, and with minimal staging and effects.
After a while, the question becomes not just what kind of industry allowed this to happen, but how many people still working in it now looked the other way.
Required viewing for every person in a job with an in-built power structure.
The whole point of Green's film is the routine, submerged, and invisible quality of its horrors: you can readily believe Tuesday might be even worse.
