Kelly Lin (Sue) and Asia Argento (Sandra) in Boarding Gate, Olivier Assayas, 2007
Sue: ...It's a lot of money. I don't have it. In partnership with you, it was possible.
Sandra: Wait. It was me and Lester. Not you.
Sue: Didn't he tell you? I'm the one with all the contacts in Beijing. My brother-in-law works for the Olympic Committee. Lester's from Hong Kong. He doesn't know a thing.
I thought of this in part because I did enjoy A.O. Scott's whack, in the New York Times Magazine, at articulating an Assayas thematic omniverse of sorts. And you may, too.
