DIRECTOR: OLIVIER ASSAYAS
CAST: ASIA ARGENTO, MICHAEL MADSEN, KELLY LIN, CARL NG, KIM GORDON, ALEX DESCAS
A high-heeled Asia Argento clacks across the screen with flair in Assayas’s artfully sleazoid, globe-hopping, corporate espionage thriller, featuring a staggering extended scene, à la Contempt, of a couple playing out their sadomasochistic relationship throughout an apartment’s many rooms and hallways, with the threat of murder dangling in the air. Boarding Gate is equal parts fever-dream and paranoid mystery.
Boarding Gate is screening as part of the series: Olivier Assayas' International Trilogy
