R | | Crime, Romance, Thriller
Corky, a tough female ex con and her lover Violet concoct a scheme to steal millions of stashed mob money and pin the blame on Violet's crooked boyfriend Caesar.
Frank Miller's Sin City and Billy Wilder were The Wachowski Sisters' influences behind the film.
You seem uncomfortable. Do I make you nervous, Corky?
Violet: Thirsty, maybe?
Directly after Caesar threatens to cut off Violet's finger, his thumb is alternately on/off the hammer of his gun between shots.
The unrated version, which nearly all DVD and Blu-Ray releases of the film contain, features two longer and more explicit sex scenes (the second one in particular is made up of almost completely different footage from its R-rated counterpart), as well as a more brutal shot of the man getting his head smashed against the toilet.
