"Bound" was what the Wachowski brothers did before The Matrix.  It's a crime drame about a woman, Violet, who wants to get away from her boyfriend, who's in the Mafia as a money launderer (literally sometimes).  She enlists the help of her new love interest, a woman just out of prison (for robbery) to attempt to steal $2M in cash from her boyfriend and get it blamed on her boyfriend's rival in the gang.

Joe Pantoliano does a really good job as Caeser, the boyfriend and his alternatives between being cold and calculating and a bit manic as he tries to figure out how to not get blamed for the missing money is very good.  Jennifer Tilley as Violet...her voice bothered me and I'll admit that she sounded a bit too childish to be delivering her lines.  I found it hard to really buy into her and Corky falling in love and being willing to risk and go through what they did after so little real interaction.  The drama in the middle of the setup for stealing the mony and then the after effects of trying to get away were the best part.  I found the ending a bit anti-climactic, though, after the good setup.  Some really interesting camera work throughout

If I remember correctly, this is the film with the lesbian scene between Tilly and......hmmmm....Gina Gershon...right?

A bald man named Savalas visited me last night in a dream.  I think it was a Telly vision.

Yep, and it is a quite good film as well, so I wonder why is not that known among the Wachowsky fans out there.


Due to the horrifying nature of this film, no one will be admitted to the theatre.

I saw a trailer for this movie on an ex-rental video I picked up and was surprised that not only was the Wachowski brothers involved in it, but that it was on TV the next week.

I thought that it was pretty entertaining, though by no means a classic.  I think I still have it on tape around here somewhere, I should really dig it up and give it a look.
