Critics reviews

The elements are there in Boarding Gate of a trashy good time: a girl and a gun, smoldering sexuality, conspiracies and double-crosses. Most B-movies, though, don’t have the Contempt-like drawn-out dialogue scenes, soundtrack featuring Brian Eno’s Music for Airports, and inhumanly slick surfaces that this one does. But the best B-movies still manage to say something about human nature in their own rough ways, and Assayas honors that legacy here, albeit in a more intellectualized form.
