Bound is one of my all-time favorite movies, not just because of the amazing sex scene directed by Susie Bright, but because …

um, other reasons. IMPORTANT ONES. Mise-en-scene and stuff.


It’s a compelling crime drama dripping with seductive suspense and breathy innuendo.

I wrote a “review” of the film in The Lesbian Sex Haiku Book (with Cats!)

It goes:


Gina Gershon wears

a tight tank top. Sorry, does

something else happen?


So we sent Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon a book, and a few days ago, Tilly tweeted about it!

She tagged Joe Pantoliano even, and there’s some amusing back and forth about why Joe didn’t get a “kitty” and “top billing.”


And then she said it was charming and I died:



Now if only Roseanne would return my tweets. (Maybe we should send her this?)

And if you’ve never seen Bound, get on it.
