The Wachowski brothers’ debut film was this clever thriller and stylishly sexy neo-noir film. It starred Gina Gershon as a butch lesbian and ex-con plumber named Corky who experienced a titillating, Sapphic sexual liaison with a breathy Chicago mobster’s bisexual girlfriend named Violet (Jennifer Tilly), while renovating the next-door apartment – they both plotted to abscond $2 million from Violet’s boyfriend Caesar (Joe Pantoliano) while engaging in steamy girl-on-girl scenes. In a sofa seduction scene with her bulging cleavage showing, black lingerie-wearing Violet asked: “Do I make you nervous, Corky?” and then admitted boldly: “I’m trying to seduce you” as she had Corky touch the tattoo on her breast. She then moistened Corky’s finger with her mouth and placed it tantalizingly between her legs, as she confessed and proved her true feelings. The first mainstream film with two female leads playing lesbians.
