Sparks fly when Violet (Jennifer Tilly) sets eyes on Corky (Gina Gershon) in an elevator. Violet is the girlfriend of a violent gangster, Caesar (Joe Pantoliano), while Corky is fresh out of prison and doing renovations on the apartment next door. As the two women launch into a passionate love affair, they assemble an intricate plan for Violet to escape from Caesar, with two million dollars of the mob’s money — but the important part is to make it out alive.
Director: The Wachowskis

ABOUT THE DUMPSTER RACCOON SERIES
Dumpster Raccoon screens trashy cult classics accompanied by live performances. In a recent interview with NOW Magazine, curator Anthony Oliveira summed up the series: “Dumpster Raccoon (more…)
BOUND (1996) – The Wachowskis announced their uncompromising (and forthrightly queer) directorial vision with BOUND, a lesbian neo-noir whose precise geometry and restrained colour palette (inspired by Frank Miller) prefigured the Matrix’s visual mastery – but with a taut sexual chemistry all its own, as a scenery-chewing ultra-butch Gina Gershon (in a role as deservedly iconic as her turn right before it in SHOWGIRLS) is seduced by breathy femme fatale Jennifer Tilly into a scheme that spirals into mayhem, seduction, and double-cross. Unmissably sexy, unstoppably cool.
Each show prefaced by our INFAMOUS VIDEO PRESHOWS, LIVE PERFORMANCES BY QUEER ARTISTS, and PRE-SHOW COMMENTARY by Toronto’s own dumpster raccoon ANTHONY OLIVEIRA!
