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.
The main sex scene set in Corky's apartment was filmed in one long shot. The Wachowskis believed that this would look more realistic than several shots edited together. Although it should have been a closed set, there were actually many people present, moving the walls of the set in order to allow full movement of the camera around the actors.
You can't kill me.
Caesar: Oh really? Why not?
Corky: I could be lying.
After a close-up of a gun placed immediately to the left of a glass, there is a wider shot showing the gun on the right side of and about a foot away from the glass.
Although the UK Video and DVD are the full uncut version, the version released in cinemas cut the shot of the finger being chopped off in the bathroom scene.
