Product Description

Amazon.ca

Destined for cult status, this provocative thriller offers a grab bag of genres (gangster movie, comedy, sexy romance, crime caper) and tops it all off with steamy passion between lesbian ex-con Corky (Gina Gershon) and a not-so-ditzy gun moll named Violet (Jennifer Tilly), who meets Corky and immediately tires of her mobster boyfriend (Joe Pantoliano). Desperate to break away from the Mob's influence and live happily ever after, the daring dames hatch a plot to steal $2 million of Mafia money. Their scheme runs into a series of escalating complications, until their very survival depends on split-second timing and criminal ingenuity. Simultaneously violent, funny, and suspenseful, Bound is sure to test your tolerance for bloodshed, but the film is crafted with such undeniable skill that several critics (including Roger Ebert) placed it on their top-ten lists for 1996. --Jeff Shannon

This is a wonderful movie, and being used to the standard offering where macho italian mobsters beat up on their dumb molls, it is a real breath of fresh air.
Jennifer Tilley oozes sexuality from the opening scene in this movie, and never stops right to the end. She plays Violet, her character, brilliantly. A mob club Vamp who is there as furniture for the boys, and they drool and fight over her, little realising her true nature.
Enter Gina Gershon, the butch ex-con called Corky, flaming obvious lesbian, replete with tattoos and leathers. Boom! Violet moves from Vamp to seductress in some of the hottest sex scenes ever filmed - gay or straight!
Having formed a sexually charged but shallow bond, the ladies embark on a plan to relieve the mob of a couple of million in blood money. Violets significant other, Caesar (played brilliantly by Joe Pantoliano) is busy in the apartment laundering the money for the mob. In a tongue in cheek parody, he actually has to launder the money, washing off the blood, haning it to dry, and ironing it.
In classic Hitchcock tradition, Violet and Corkey tell us exactly how the heist is going to go down. And of course, it all goes horrible wrong. Caesar is not as dumb as they thought, and the plot escalates into angst, madness, violence and murder with a neat Tarantino-esqe twist.
This is a great movie - Hitchcock meets Tarantino. Lots of atmosphere and suspense, but also lots of laughs, not to mention mayhem and murder. Not a movie for those who are squeamish around blood, murder, violence, lesbianism or drain clearence. But highly recommended for those who love bondage, leather, tattoos, butch lady decorators and shiny stainless steel sink traps.

Format: DVD
Corky (Gina Gershon) is an ex-con that has just been released from prison. Violet (Jennifer Tilly) is the girlfriend of Caesar (Joe Pantoliano), the mob's money launderer. When they meet in the elevator, the look that passes between them is curious if not a little lustful. Corky is doing repair work for the mob in the apartment down the hall (she is good with her hands). Soon Violet is knocking on the door offering coffee and a whole lot more (she know what she wants). When Violet accidentally loses an earring down the sink, Corky is called to retrieve it for her. It isn't really the earring that Violet is after though and Corky isn't about to resist a gorgeous woman.

One night, Caesar returns home carrying armfuls of bloody money that the mob's accountant has swindled. He needs to clean and count the cash before the mob boss arrives to reclaim his money the next evening. This starts Violet thinking, and soon Corky is thinking the same thing. Together they plot a truly ostentatious plan, to rip off the mob and force Caesar to go on the run. Unfortunately, things rarely go as planned.

Director/writers Andy and Lana Wachowski have created a smart, sexy thriller full of meaningful glances and hidden innuendo. The cinematography is brilliant, the visuals display a quirky sense of humour that draws the audience into the story and doesn't let go until the end.

Jennifer Tilly is captivating as Violet, her slow masterful seduction of Corky is nothing less than enthralling. Gina Gershon's Corky is the epitome of bad girl clad in sexy tank tops smudged with grease. The women's hot sex scenes pepper the film with steamy eroticism that makes it a delight to watch.

For warchild27: Yes, on track 18 of my DVD, Joey Pants' commentary cuts out for most of the rest of the track. From track 19 on, the commentary should be fine. However, I bought a used copy which has visible scratches. If your audio cuts out on some other track than 18, then you have a defective disk (and so do I).
Film is an actor's film, rich in suspense and nuance. Joey Pants is great as always. Tilly is odd, and Gina Gershon is a bit disappointing to me, but all of the character actors were great, especially Law & Order SVU's Christopher Meloni, a riot as a whacked-out psychopathic henchman.
I was a bit disappointed in the editing, although some shots and editing are clever. Some of the editing decisions are explained in the commentary, which I found to be a hoot and which genuinely enriched my experience of the film. Too bad all of the stars showed up late for the commentary session, Tilly and Gershon coming in about 30 minutes before the end of the flick!
This is not a lesbian suspense film; it's a suspense film in which the protagonists are lesbians. The film attempts, I think successfully, to make their lesbianism seem normal.

I thought this movie was visually very interesting. There are unusual camera angles (underneath a sink, under the dashboard of a car, through the walls between apartments) and the lighting is an actor in its own right.
But please don't tell me that this is a good plot. The only thing that makes it unique is that the lovers are both female. If Gina Gershon's character were a guy, the story would be hackneyed and moldy. I'm all in favor of strong female leading characters and positive, assertive lesbian characters, but these two don't enhance an otherwise tired story in a unique way.
SPOILER ALERT: The scene with Johnnie and Shelley in the bathroom with the pruning shears goes too far. You could stop that scene when he produces the shears and says "I'm gonna ask you ten times" and it would have been suspenseful and horrifying enough. They didn't have to show blood spurts and dropped digits. Jennifer Tilly's reactions to the sound effects are far more effective than anything they could show. Like the girls' second intimate scene (the seduction fulfilled), the directors just went gratuitously over the top. A hint is enough. Cheap titillation like that drags down an otherwise very good film.
SPOILER ALERT TWO: I'm still not sure how I feel about the ending of this film. It's nice that they had a semi-happy ending, but there are times when you think that they couldn't possibly get away with it.
And I agree with some of my fellow reviewers: if you can stand the sound of Jennifer Tilly's voice, you'll be fine.
