Three years before the Wachowskis released The Matrix, their debut, Bound, was already one of the most visually stunning crime thrillers of the 1990s. This intense, erotic neo-noir crime thriller stars Gina Gershon as Corky, an ex-con who, after a torrid love affair with neighbor Violet (Jennifer Tilly), joins forces with her to dupe her gangster boyfriend Caesar (Joe Pantoliano) out of $2 million of laundered mob cash. This edge-of-your-seat thriller was a mold-breaker of queer cinema,
as mainstream films featuring complex queer characters were still rare in 1990s Hollywood. (1996, USA, 109 mins, R, English | Dir. Lana & Lilly Wachowski)
