She appeared in the fourth installment of Kevin Smith’s ‘View Askewniverse’ series, ‘Dogma.’ Prior to its release, the film’s satirical portrayal of the Catholic Church and Catholicism sparked a lot of debate. In addition, concerted demonstrations in numerous countries delayed its distribution, and Smith received a few death threats. ‘Ordinary Decent Criminal,’ ‘What Planet Are You From?,’ and ‘Where the Money Is’ were among Fiorentino’s efforts in 2000.
While Thaddeus O’Sullivan’s ‘Ordinary Decent Criminal’ is partially inspired on the life of Martin Cahill, a legendary Irish crime lord, the other two films are sci-fi comedy and drama crime flicks, respectively.
