..movie's not the reason...
1 September 2015 | by bjariasSee all my reviews

Go on bing.. type in Asia Argento.. and right there is all the reason most need to know why their watching anything she is in. It is true Boarding Gate is overall not worth the experience (with way too much foreign dialogue not subtitled), but like said.. you're watching for another purpose. Hey, parts you don't like press fast-forward. Now if you haven't already seen it, and I can't believe any true Asia fans haven't.. go search out and watch B.Monkey. It's an almost ten year earlier AA flick (much less wear and tear.. remember she's a very passionate woman) and IMHO it's one of the best films she's done. Compare the supporting casts and scripts.. it's hands-down no contest. Sure she's more than likely not going to take home any statues.. but we'll keep watching none the less. Like the man said.. when she is on screen.. you just don't take your eyes off her!
