During the 90s low budget neo-noir films had a brief resurgence. Basic Instinct, The Hot Spot, The Last Seduction, A Simple Plan, True Romance, and Red Rock West are all excellent examples of these films. Bound seems to have slipped through the cracks, and has been almost forgotten, which is surprising considering it was written and directed by the Wachowskis. That's right, the same people that made the Matrix trilogy.
Bound involves a lesbian romance that eventually leads to a clever plan to rob the mob. Of course things don't go as planned, and the second half of this film will have you on the edge of your seat.
