[VIDEO ESSAY] Revered in lesbian circles for its hat-tips to the milieu's authenticity, "Bound" is a neo-noir that earns every ratchet click of tension is draws from its audience - body and soul.

It's been praised for its spin on film noir standards, but all it actually does is reproduce them and arrange them back-to-back.

This lesbian crime drama is enjoyable, though it's a pale imitation of the Cohen brothers and Tarantino.

Some caper movies build suspense, while others tweak the genre with tongue lancing cheek. But this lesbian caper pic often pulls off both feats in the same scene, even simultaneously.
