Synopsis
Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly nearly set the screen on fire in this clever, female-powered twist on the standard Mob caper film. Gershon is Corky, an ex-con renovating the apartment next door to where Tilly's Violet lives. Violet is the moll of psychotic gangster Caesar (Joe Pantoliano), who uses the apartment as an occasional location for meetings and beatings, and also uses Violet as an occasional plaything for his Mob cronies. Violet is attracted to the super-sexy Corky, and the two begin an intense affair. Corky hatches a plot to escape with $2 million that Caesar is planning to give to a Mob boss, and the mayhem escalates from there. ~ Don Kaye, All Movie Guide

Originally advertised as a lesbian film, but actually a good suspense thriller. A small, but good cast. Good story and camera work. Definately worth a look.

This film was poorly directed, and over-acted. I'll bet you'll eject after less than ten minutes.

I enjoyed this movie enormously. Strangely enough, it is a classic gangster movie. In truth, Corky could just as easily have been written for a man, but the dynamics of secrecy and lies, and the power of our cultural presumptions to make the heist work elevate this one out of the usual pap this genre produces. I highly recommend it.
