Two lesbians betray a gangster, the former lover of one of them, and try to flee town with his millions.
This pre-Matrix thriller from The Wachowski Brothers ranks amongst their best work. Well written & brilliantly acted. It almost comes off looking like a Coen Brothers movie.
It's a little bit of a shame that the filmmakers became a little too obsessed with the science fiction genre following this promising debut.
