Trailers I Love

With the release of Olivier Assayas' "Boarding Gate" on DVD Tuesday, here's a quick look back at his previous film, "Clean". Released in 2006, it stars the beyond beautiful Maggie Cheung as a music producer scratching her way out of addiction to maintain a relationship with her son. Filmed in typically observant handheld style by Assayas, "Clean" defies character expectations in just about every way. Assayas has become my favorite international film director, and this one deserves a rental if you haven't seen it.
