The Wachowskis' original director of photography resigned on the grounds that he could not do the film with the limited budget he had available, nor did he know anyone he believed could. Subsequently cinematographer Bill Pope was hired, who knew "a bunch of cheap guys". 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 »

Although the UK Video and DVD are the full uncut version, the version released in cinemas cut the shot of the finger being chopped off in the bathroom 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.
