Product Description

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 text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

I've seen this film a couple of times over the years and I don't really remember much of the plot, when I first think of it. It's a very sexy film in a nice mystical way and that's what strikes me every time it screens on TV.
There are so many films with quite a bit of sex in them, but this one really stands out, and no it doesn't stand out cause it's lesbian sex.
It's really well-made and I as a hetero sexual feel very relaxed and comfortably excited watching it. Why wouldn't I? Well, because a lot of the time homosexuality in particular and female sexuality in general (sometimes the sexuality of the male as well of course), screens as something unnatural and ugly. Sex is always twisted all sorts of ways in film, which sometimes can just get too much. Which I think this film handles really well - it has got quite a bit of naivety, whether it be false or not, in Jennifer's part and that combined with the rest of the film creates a thrilling result that manages to stay away from the traps of becoming just another crap film. If you think about it, the mob story on it's own isn't much to hang in a tree, but the girls really make this a spicy one! :-) I enjoy to watch it every once in a while, possibly because I don't really remember the story after a while, it feels knew every time I watch it!

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.

BOUND tells the twisted tale of a Mobster (Joe Pantiliano), his mistress Violet (Jennifer Tilly), her lover Corky (Gina Gershon), and 2 Million dollars of the Mob's money. The film was written and dircted by the Wachowski Brothers, who also brought us THE MATRIX, is a winner from start to finish.From its twists and turns, to its bold use of sexuality, and its humor, the film is hard to classify into a genre. It is a mob movie, for sure, but it's also could be a thriller, or comedy caper. The first time I saw BOUND, I had no idea how it was going to end up, or who would ultimately come out on top. Pantiliano doesn't disappoint as your "typical" Mafia man. Tilly and Gershon certainly make for an interesting couple, but as with most things in life, it all really comes down to the money. Perfectly paced and directed with a tilted style, the movie is sure to leave any viewer satisfied, and guessing till the end.
The DVD with the unrated cut of the film takes things a bit further than the theatrical version did. The DVD also features a fun commentary track with cast members and filmmakers. Everyone offers some cool trivia and info about the film. The only other extra on the disc is the trailer. Don't let the film's lack of classification throw you. BOUND is sure to excite any and all who see it Highly Recommended. Special Edition anyone...?
