Some random reflections from a shallow consumer of lots of movies.

I sure was looking forward to seeing this one. This is the Wachowski brothers' movie from before they made The Matrix. The Matrix: a masterpiece. Bound: just a piece. I liked Joe Pantoliano's character OK. He went on to play Cypher in The Matrix and Teddy Gammell in Memento, both of which were terrific roles. There's this creepy love triangle, the women betraying the ganster boyfriend, but mostly a boring movie, certainly nothing special. Thankfully, the creative bug really bit and the brothers gave us the Matrix trilogy! Bottom line: one star.
