Bound (1996)

Bound (1996, USA) C-108m. *** D: Larry and Andy Wachowski. Starring Jennifer Tilly, Gina Gershon, Joe Pantoliano, Richard Sarafian. Intricate story about a lesbian being seduced by a woman whose lover (Pantoliano, in a tour-de-force performance) is involved with the mafia. The two plan to cheat him out of the two million dollars he has to deliver to the mafia boss (Sarafian) of the city. Once things get started in this thriller (and it takes a while) it never lets up thanks to Pantoliano's flamboyant performance and an atmospheric, if sometimes overly melodramatic soundtrack. An impressive debut for the Wachowski brothers (THE MATRIX), who also wrote the screenplay and produced the picture.
