My Favorite film
| Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
There's $2 million dollars in a suitcase on a desk in an apartment in Chicago.... Ceasar launders money for the mob. Violet is his alluring mafia moll. Corky is an ex con who just got out of the joint.
What's the last thing that could comew between the sleazy wise guy like Ceasar & all that money? A couple of women with bodies to die for and brains to match. They become engulfed in a physical attraction that spurs them to relieve Violets boyfriend of the $2 million in cash.
Corky & Violet are about to learn the meaning of trusting someone with your life. And Ceasar? he's about to learn a little something about women. In the end, it all comes down to one question.... WHO CAN YOU TRUST?
Bound DVD Review
It's a decent film,with decent acting & use of tension,ok plot etc. but it's no Hitchcock classic. The much publicized erotic lesbian scenes are ok but very brief,not the impression one gains from the cover reviews. Worth a watch if u want something not too demanding but glad not to have paid inflated cinema prices to see.
Yes it has some lesbian scence( mainly at the begining)but don't judge it the lesbian hype that comes with it. This film has lot's of twists and turns, a good script and great acting. Yes it is violent, but it is set in place by a mafiosa base to it.I thought it was a great film that didn't focus solely on the women to women action but kept it in with the lpot of the film. A good beer and snack film. Highly recommened.
I BOUGHT THIS FILM FROM E BAY, I HAVE TO SAY ITS THE BEST IVE SEEN FOR A LONG TIME, THERES A LITTLE BIT OF LESBIAN AT THE START AND END, BUT NEVER MIND. THE STORY LINE IS GREAT, ABOUT TWO WOMEN MEETING AND PLOTING AGAINST THE MAFFIA, AT THE SAME TIME LEARNING TO TRUST EACH OTHER, THIS IS A MUST FOR ALL
Lesbian sex. Gruesome violence. And a mobster in the middle.
We begin with three people in an elevator. Ceasar (Joe Pantoliano) stares at the closed door, as most of us would. His gal Violet (Jennifer Tilly) has her eyes on a vision in leather slouching against the back wall. Corky (Gina Gershon) returns the look. Corky is renovating an apartment. Ceasar and Violet live in the place next door. A good reason to have coffee and speak in vagaries with pregnant pauses and longing stares.
There are a lot of stares and pauses as the seduction ritual eventually turns into a horizontal bop. There are two encounters, the first more graphic than the second, though the clothes don't go flying. I'd tell you more, but I like to keep these reviews "G" rated.
First time directors Larry and Andy Wachowski blatantly admit that, if everything else about Bound failed, at least "The fact that you get to watch Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon kiss is enough right there to bring the audiences in."
It's a calculated effort, and it works. Though this first pair of encounters is the last you will see in the flick, Bound soon becomes an enthralling thriller.
Ceasar launders money for the mob. He's also protective of his bosses' cash, as demonstrated in the gruesome torture of an embezzler who's ripped off over $2 million. Violet has seen it before. She knows all the ins and outs of the operation and has a plan to rip off the mob and frame Ceasar. Corky, an ex-con herself, adds details to the intricate plot. It's a perfect plan which plays out in an extended flashback, like lots of good noir films.
Until everything goes wrong. The film kicks into present time and it's an edge-of-your-seat ride until the end.
