The Wachowski's lesbian themed crime drama is a slick sexy thriller with a pair of strong performances by Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly. Borrowing from the likes of Billy Wilder and Alfred HItchcock, the two portray complex vulnerable protagonists facing against a desperate but dangerous enemy when their plan for a clean getaway go awry.

Slick & sizzling - a mix of noir and crime thriller - Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly steam up the screen in this little gem from the Wachowski Bros. (before they started a little project called The Matrix). A good one to check out.

A pleasant surprise from Matrix directors Andy and Larry. It is well executed in pacing, suspense, cinematography and action. Plot is a little thin at times but it is worth a rent, especially for W fans who want to see where it all began.

A mobster's moll and her lesbian lover hatch a plan to rob $2 million from his gang. Bound was the debut of the Wachowski brothers and is a very slick post-Tarantino crime thriller that's heavily influenced by Film Noir. They take both plot elements and visual trappings from classic detective movies and mix in a sexual affair that no doubt makes this film very popular with the Thelma & Louise set. In fact the early scenes of seduction were no doubt rather shocking to mainstream audiences back in the day but now they seem a little clunky and contrived. Once the scam is put into action however, there are plenty of twists and turns to the plot, provided by Joe Pantaliano's hissably sexist thug and his failure to behave as they meticulously predicted. It's a kind of "battle of the sexes" set …
