"She's definitely not just bad and not just good. She's both. That makes her different and challenging to play."

Bad? Good? She's got the gun. And the tattoos. Italian Cinema Week at the Flea™ concludes with Asia Argento as Yelena, Anarchy 99 evil doer in xXx.

"I love action movies," the 27-year-old actress revealed during the recent press tour for her latest film, xXx. "I really love these big American movies. I love to watch them. I find them much more fun than some "artsy" movies, so I always wanted to do one. I thought it would be a real challenge to do one."

While Argento had always wanted to do an American action film I had taken an irrational antipathy toward the movie and avoided it until recently. Fortunately, a fanatic Vin Diesel friend of mine convinced me to give it a chance and now I want, like, a thirty-year Bond run of xXx movies. So much fun.

Asia is incredibly hot. Her dad, Dario, has made some of the weirdest, most surreal, horror films ever. Just thought, he should deserve a mention. You'd probably find his stuff, umm, interesting.

Quite right! I mentioned Dario Argento at the beginning of the week...

Whoops! You did mention that. Sorry commander. I hadn't checked your site this week. Thanks for the wonderful Asia coverage.

Welcome aboard, Keith! Bugsplat is not loading at the moment so your blog will appear in the roll as "Sanity Is Not Statistical" until I can check to make sure that is right. Cheers, Nick
