An uptight and conservative woman, working on tenure as a literacy professor at a large urban university, finds herself strangely attracted to a free-spirited, liberal woman who works at a local carnival that comes to town.
Corky, a lesbian ex con hired to work in an apartment as a plumber, meets neighbors Caesar, who launders money for the Mafia, and his girlfriend Violet. The two women have a love affair and decide to steal $2,000,000 that Caesar has in custody before he gives them back to Mafia boss Gino Marzone. Caesar is set up by the two scheming women as a scapegoat but things start to go wrong when he reacts in an unexpected way...Written by

When Violet shoots Caesar, he falls backwards in the paint. As he hits the floor, you can see a wire attached to his left pant leg. This wire is used by the special effects crew to set off the gunshots ripping through Caesar's shirt. You can also see the wire outline in the paint on the floor just before and after Caesar hits the floor. See more »
If there's one thing I can't stand about sleeping with women, it's all the fucking mind-reading.

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.

Edge-Of-Your-Seat Erotic Thriller And An Amazing Debut For The Wachowskis
Gripping, violent mobster tale and a very sexy love story. What a stunning debut for the Wachowskis this film was (and I can't for the life of me understand why this film hasn't been seen by a huge audience). Amazing camera, fantastic acting and so tight there's not a single dull moment in it. Edge-of-your-seat stuff. 9 stars out of 10
