“Before the Wachowski sisters gave us the scoop on The Matrix, they pushed boundaries during the 90s indie boom with this neo-noir about lovers Violet (Jennifer Tilly) and Corky (Gina Gershon), who embark on a passionate affair that really heats up after they plan to rob the mafia. Come for some of the most erotic hand closeups you’ll ever see, stick around for the steamy sex scenes, then stay on the edge of your seat for high-stakes developments like the police interrupting your murder spree and your girlfriend getting tied up in an actual closet.” – Chicago Reader
