Bound (1996). The Wachowskis direct this crime thriller starring Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon (above), who said playing Violet was the best role she had ever had. A gangster-Mafia-heist film with a central lesbian relationship. The plot is poor, but some of the themes, like living closeted lives (not just lesbian), and the gorgeous Tilly and Gershon make for very watchable viewing. The ending is against the general run of such films.
