The main characters have 'speaking names' like Corky, Violet, and Caesar (his name also sounds like 'scissor' which is a crucial tool in the film), or the names kind of rhyme to each other while the characters' behavior is the total opposite, like the Marzones (Johnny - Gino). See more »
In the standard format home version, when Cesar first comes home and meets Corky, you can see Corky's "mark" on the floor. Even in the widescreen format, you can see her look down at it before she stands at her place for the scene. 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.
