The Many Faces Of Asami

Editor, Europe; Rotterdam, The Netherlands (@ardvark23)
This week, Mitsutake Kurando's Gun Woman was shown at the Sitges festival, part of its worldwide tour since its world premier in Yubari (where our own James Marsh saw and reviewed it).

The undisputed centerpiece, title character and star of Gun Woman is Japanese actress Asami, who impressively lifts the film to a higher level whenever she is on-screen.

Her career path as an actress has been a strange one, starting in the hardcore adult industry and becoming more and more mainstream by way of extreme splattergore. But from the very first film I saw her in, she's managed to make me laugh. There is a kind of mischievous goofy face she can pull, combined with a talent for comedic timing, which renders me powerless even during the worst possible jokes. Impressively, she never even once uses this ability during Gun Woman, yet easily carries the movie, so I'm very curious about what she'll do next.

Therefore, once again I'm going to use a gallery of seven close-ups of one of my favorite thespians to make a quiz. Click through the images and guess which seven movies they're from! No competition, no prizes, just for fun, try to see how far you get without using IMDb.

And I'll post the answers next Thursday (earlier if someone has all seven of them right).

And here she is! This picture isn't part of the quiz yet, but all others are. Here, she is doing an introduction for a movie she isn't all that much in, actually, but of which a still is featured in this quiz (I'll say which one after it's been guessed).

Click through the gallery, and check how many you recognize. I haven't put any of her old hardcore adult videos in there, nor have I included any shots worth labeling "NSFW" (despite some films being softcore-ish). So feel safe to do all the browsing you need without the risk of being offended!
