This was the film that convinced the studio of the Wachowski's talent as directors so that they could make the The Matrix (1999), a screenplay/story they had come up with during the filming of their first screenplay, Assassins (1995). See more »

Late last night I caught 'BOUND'on the Independent Film Channel, and am still thinking about this film, shot in Red, White, and Black which further underlined the noir nature. Gina Gerson and Joe Pantoliano were memorable, as was everyone else- even the two policemen who come to check things out, having received a call about gunshots having been overheard. Clever, funny, occasionally sexy, but it hold your attention as the story unfolds and introduces many story lines. Unfortunately I am NOT a fan of Jennifer Tilly- her voice is like fingernails on a blackboard to me- but she was perfect for this role.
The final scene was perfect, and I didn't see it coming, which always pleases me. Check it out- you'll be glad you did.
