BoundDirector: Andy Wachowski, Larry Wachowski, Jennifer Tilly, Gina Gershon
Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly nearly set the screen on fire in this clever, female-powered twist on the standard Mob caper film. Gershon is Corky, an ex-con renovating the apartment next door to where Tilly's Violet lives. Violet is the moll of psychotic gangster Caesar (Joe Pantoliano), who uses the apartment as an occasional location for meetings and beatings, and also uses Violet as an occasional plaything for his Mob cronies. Violet is attracted to the super-sexy Corky, and the two begin an intense affair. Corky hatches a plot to escape with $2 million that Caesar is planning to give to a Mob boss, and the mayhem escalates from there.

Great cinematography and great plot, however lacks on the development of the relationship between the two protagonists. Too bad that it follows the same queer stereotypes instead of breaking them. I would have liked to see more developing of the two main characters and of their relationship, perhaps leading to more surprises and a more unique perspective. Nevertheless, it's still mostly enjoyable!
This movie is one of the best mob movies I've seen in a long time. The cinematography, script and cast are all amazing. What makes this movie even more interesting is that instead of the two main charaters who pair up against the mob and fall in love aren't the normal ''Bonnie and Claude'' man and woman duo. They are two lesbians. Who would have thought!
One viewing of this flick is NOT enough, the subleties and inuendoes are amazing. The chemistry between Gershon's and Tilly's character is awesome. The tone here is both campy and suspensefull...Amust see for all..
Very sexy, with a great story to go along with it.
