A slap to the face, a shot to the heart.

Delivering a heady mix of hardboiled violence and sex, Lana and Lilly Wachowski made their directorial debut with this low-budget, yet ultra-stylish thriller.

Paying homage to the work of Sunset Boulevard director Billy Wilder, but with a torrid lesbian romance which sets the film apart from its predecessors, it works on many levels.

Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly, two severely-underrated actresses, drive the plot, scheming to topple mob money man Joe Pantoliano.

The duo will betray anyone and everyone, except the one they love, in a surprisingly heartfelt neo noir.
