The neo-noir crime drama, Bound, marked the directorial debut of the transgender Wachowski siblings, formerly Larry and Andy, now Lana and Lilly, respectively. To make the sex scenes between the two women come alive, the Wachowskis hired sex educator Susie Bright to choreograph them. Violet leads her through the apartment. It is expensively furnished with very masculine tastes; a lot of gray and black leather.
Bound movie review & film summary () | Roger Ebert
It's pure cinema, spread over several genres. It's a caper movie, a gangster movie, a sex movie and a slapstick comedy. It's amazing to discover all this virtuosity and confidence in two first-time filmmakers, Larry and Andy Wachowski , self-described college dropouts, still in their 20s, from Chicago. As the film opens, a tough but sexy woman is moving into a new apartment. She rides the elevator to her floor with what looks like a mobster and his ditzy girlfriend. He's a mobster, all right, but she's not as ditzy as she looks.
Sex Scenes: Femme Fatale for Femme Fatale
The first 25 minutes of Bound are a long buildup to a sex scene. But instead of using a man to get what they want, the two protagonists use each other, becoming lovers and conspiring to steal from the mafia. As far as queer cinema goes, this is a very simple and horny movie.
