Director Oliver Assayas has established his name by crafting well-made erotic thrillers like DEMONLOVER and CLEAN. The director sticks closely to his guns by adding another similarly themed entry to his canon in BOARDING GATE. Assayas's film is a loosely plotted drama that stars the provocative Asia Argento (SCARLET DIVA) as Sandra, a former prostitute with a penchant for S&M, narcotics, and assassination. Sandra's former flame, sleazy businessman Miles (Michael Madsen), wants to get back together with her, and the two meet after indulging in some steamy phone sex. Sandra murders Miles during a bout of coital rough- and-tumble, and she flees to Hong Kong to be with her new lover, Lester (Carl Ng).

Boarding Pass has less love, more carnage and more improbability and is less (or no) satisfying except relief that it's over.
The saving grace, kind of, is the brief exposure of her breasts, which seems to be a signature move of hers. Not really enough to save the picture, but at least an honest try.
Maltin called this film Eurotrash and though I am not sure what that means, it sounds about right. The film is mainly in English but also French and Chinese (Mandarin?). So your CC button will be put into play.
The promo material calls this an "erotic thriller" but it did not excel in either genre. Argento is intense but not nuanced and she does not articulate well, so that her Italian English accent is often unintelligible.
Not really sexy but tries hard to be kinky. The characters are uniformly unappealing.
I remember renting this from Blockbuster ages ago so thought I guess I'll buy it
I can think back when I first saw it I did kinda like it in a sick kinda way
yes this movie is strange but something about it draws you in
