When Violet is sitting up in bed after her tryst with Corky, she has just one shoulder strap in place. As the scene progresses, the strap jumps from her left shoulder to her right shoulder and back again. In the same scene, Corky's hair is (not) behind her ear, and the sheet covering Violet changes with the camera angle. See more »
I'm a dead man, Johnnie? I'm a fucking dead man? Guess again, Johnnie. Who's the dead man? Who? Who's dead, fuckface? Who? Who? I can't hear you, Johnnie. Guess again. Take another guess, Johnnie. Take another fucking guess.

The unrated version, which nearly all DVD and Blu-Ray releases of the film contain, features two longer and more explicit sex scenes (the second one in particular is made up of almost completely different footage from its R-rated counterpart), as well as a more brutal shot of the man getting his head smashed against the toilet.

In my personal opinion, Bound is one of the most intelligent and erotic films ever made. It's not often that you see both of those words describing the same work of art.
I don't feel that the relationship between Corky and Violet is something that you should have to "get past" being that the tone of the film is that of escape (hence the title "Bound") and the very nature of their relationship upholds that idea. However if you are less open-minded regarding your own sexuality or completely homophobic, the scattered and brief exchanges between the two leading characters may not settle well with you. One of the best things about the film is the cinematic detail, all the little disturbing and intriguing things that the Wachowskis chose to hone in on...If you are a fan of The Matrix films, you'll really get to see where it all started with Bound.
I could rattle on forever about the pure genius of the film and that of the Wachowski Brothers but I won't. Just see the film for yourself, you'll either hate it or love it.
