Asia Carrera through the window

Gram Ponante
I never saw an Asia Carrera movie until I received the Asia Carrera 4-on-1 box set, but it is clear that she inspired people to make movies about her. In such circumstances, someone's devotion might become somewhat loopy.

For example, this is a scene in which Carrera has just learned she might have breast cancer. I thought this sort of head-scratchingly non-erotic thematic material just popped up within the past couple of years with Sacred Sin and Corruption, but I have to admit that Carrera makes an awareness of her own mortality look good.

The four films are like sticky time machines; all of them are at least eight years old. The best are Bud Lee's Betrayal and Wesley Emerson's Asia Is in Too Deep.

I just don't want to see any prostate exams just yet.
