Bound/A-,A-

Republic/1996/110m/WS 1.85

        Directed by the brothers Wachowski, Bound paints sexuality with stylish strokes in a noir frame. When Corky, the lesbian handyperson, begins work on the apartment next door, Gina sees an opportunity to break with her overbearing Mafia boy friend and make a financial score at the same time.
     Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon as the ladies of deceit are a hot screen pair and the Wachowski camera finds every angle to exacerbate the heat and deception. The sex may be intense for some audiences, but it is in keeping with the thematic material.

The fateful meeting. Republic HV

   This beautiful DVD displays the deepest of blacks. Contrast is appropriately dramatic and vivid colors excite the senses. Sharp images are complimented by excellent surround sound. Andy and Larry Wachowski are joined in audio commentary by actor Joe Pantoliano and others for enthusiastic and funny film observations.
