The directorial debut of the brothers responsible for The Matrix, Bound is an equally stylish exploration of genre cinema. With an inventive twist on the femme fatale, Bound offers a lesbian pair – one moll, the other an ex-con plumber – who plan a heist to steal $2 million of local mob money.
Chosen for My Noir by
Stef Elrick, Cornerhouse Gallery Host:
“Subversion, stilettos and sex – Bound has always left me gasping (for varying reasons) right up until its squirm-riddled climax. Beautifully shot, not only does it feature the steamiest noir duo ever captured in celluloid (Jennifer Tilley and Gina Gershon), it’s the Wachowski Bros’ first film! It’s a sultry swerving joy ride through Mafioso realms cleverly masterminded by two Sapphic femme fatales. Exceptional!”
