Running time 108 min
The Wachowskis’ stylish Mob thriller has roots in the classic film noirs of the 40s, with one clever twist to the narrative. Our hero, who Jennifer Tilly’s sensual femme fatale sets out to seduce, is this time a heroine. Corky, a surprisingly convincing Gershon in the sexy butch role, tries to resist Violet’s attentions at first, but it’s not long before she succumbs and then the two really are in trouble as they try to outsmart some very violent mobsters.
