GINA GERSON and JENNIFER TILLY star in “Bound” (1996) as two women who plot to steal $2 million from Tilly’s mob boyfriend, played by Joe Pantoliano. Written and directed by sisters Lana and Lilly Wachowski (better known for “The Matrix”), the film is compelling in ways most films about organized crime aren’t.

The leads are likable despite being as corrupt as the characters we view as villains. They may not do any actual killing or torture themselves (there are some rough scenes—this isn’t a comedy), but they’re fully aware their theft will result in death and disaster for others. Yet we still like them, partly because the other guys are worse and partly, I think, because we identify with them for their sexual orientation. They’re underdogs in multiple ways, and we can’t help rooting for them. READ MORE
