PRESS & REVIEWS
Mark Grabianowski's short film is probably one of the best micro-budget titles I've seen in quite a while. It's quick, and it's deep for those who really want to consider the content. Bound is one of those movies you could debate the finer points of justice upon if you decided to really take things apart. For sure, four stars. Well done.
Bound is a well-made short thriller/drama that asks some serious questions to the viewer. What would you do if you were in Claire’s position? Mark Grabianowski has crafted a stellar short film, aided by some talented cast and crew members.
UK FILM REVIEW
Bound takes a look at a woman's tormented soul. It explores themes of loss, hatred, family and how far a person is willing to go for justice. With outstanding acting by Dionne and an interesting plot, this achievement is worthy of a lot of praise and recognition.

Filmmaker Mark Grabianowski’s Film Short ‘Coyote,’ Is Inspired By True Events, But Profoundly Brilliant And Unique
SCOTT'S MOVIE COMMENTS
Mark Grabianowski’s previous film Messiah, a creepy little Halloween number, made an impression because of its professional polish, its confident command of escalating suspense, and its ability to cram a lot of information comfortably into its brief running time. This follow-up is likewise infused with a rising tide of unease and tightening tension, although it has a look and feel completely different from the previous film.
