American ( A+ Movie) My Ratings 8.5/10
“Bound” is a cool, stylish and wildly entertaining ode to noir and sexploitation. Great performances all around, especially from its three leads.
Noir and sexuality
The film noir is a genre widely associated with the 1940s and 1950s. Occasional movies since then have dabbled in the genre (such as Oliver Stone’s “U Turn”), but “Bound” is probably the most interesting. Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly play lesbians who scheme to obtain a bunch of money from Tilly’s character’s mafia husband (Joe Pantoliano). But things don’t quite go as planned, leading to some of the tensest moments ever put on screen.
The Wachowski sisters (brothers at the time, as they hadn’t yet transitioned) say that the movie is about “the boxes people make of their lives”, that it is not only gay people who “live in closets”. Most of the movie takes place in closed spaces, while Tilly’s character is trapped in her marriage.
Whatever the case, it’s an impressive piece of work. The Wachowskis continued their fine output with “The Matrix” and “Cloud Atlas” (while producing “V for Vendetta”). In the meantime, “Bound” constituted part of the shift in cinema’s depictions of LGBT people. I recommend it.
