My first taste of the Wachowski Sisters’ work and I loved it! 

Beautifully shot - I would go as far to say a masterclass in clever editing and match cutting. It maintains the momentum of the film and adds to the intensity of the story by keeping you on your toes. 

Given the context of when this film was made, I like to think the Wachowski’s found an escape/release in making a film centred around queer women escaping a heteronormative space together. This context made me enjoy the film even more somehow. 

A few weeks ago me and Jav we’re searching for queer films with happy endings after binging It’s A Sin to cure our sorrows and I am FUMING that this wasn’t on the list!!!
