UNCOMFORTABLE PLOT SUMMARY (inspired by this): Lesbians fuck each other, then the mob.
Starring Jennifer Tilly (Bonnie Swanson, wife of wheelchair-cop-guy in Family Guy, Tideland) in her sexiest role EVER, and Gina Gershon (Six in Tripping The Rift‘s 2004 season, Catwoman in The Batman cartoon) in her most un-attractive role ever — but she still fails at being un-attractive.
With Joe Pantoliano (Memento, The Matrix, Daredevil, Percy Jackson & The Olympians:The Lightning Thief, The Goonies), John P. Ryan, Christopher Meloni (Law & Order, Oz, Carriers, Harold & Kumar 1-2, Wet Hot American Summer, Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas, 12 Monkeys), and Richard C. Sarafian
And a cameo by Susie Bright, who I saw speak at Virginia Tech! Like 80% of the audience had to walk out because they couldn’t take the sex clips she played to explain the sex topics she talked about. Pussies. Susie Bright also helped as a technical consultant for the bedroom scenes.
QUIRKS: Lesbian seduction. Chase the money.
VISUALS: Lesbian seduction. And oh, the great directing style of the Wachowskis.
SOUNDTRACK: Too busy thinking about lesbian seduction to notice.
MORALS: Make sure you know who you trust.
BAD STUFF: Chase the money isn’t as titillating as lesbian seduction.
CONCLUSION: Take a normal chase-the-money film, add some lesbian seduction as well as the superb direction of the Wachowskis, blend together, and get a really good thriller, compared to others of the same genre.
RECOMMENDATION: The Wachowskis make some really good movies. That is the basis for watching yet another “chase the money” movie. Go for it.
SIMILAR MOVIES: Judas Kiss, The Big Nothing, High Times’ Potluck, Sin City. Tons of movies follow the “scheming to chase the money” formula. Though not many have the lesbianism angle at the same time.
Violet: I’m not apologizing for what I did. I’m apologizing for what I didn’t do.
Corky: For me, stealing’s always been a lot like sex. Two people who want the same thing: they get in a room, they talk about it. They start to plan. It’s kind of like flirting. It’s kind of like… foreplay, ’cause the more they talk about it, the wetter they get. The only difference is, I can fuck someone I’ve just met. But to steal? I need to know someone like I know myself.
Mood: sort of here
