Love it.

I really like Paul Verhoeven films, love Sharon Stone and have thought Basic Instinct to be a wonderful film since first seeing it on general release. So that's three things I don't have in common with most people and to make matters worse (or better) it is probably the film I have watched more often than any other (Don't Look Now might give it a good run). And the crazy thing is, of course, that it is a thriller with lots of suspense and 'who did that?' moments all the time, so how can it be watched many times? The answer is, that this is so well done that you can't help getting caught wondering and double guessing or simply not caring and just enjoying the fabulous visual, the fantastic score (not the only echo of Vertigo (there's one more I watch fairly frequently - how strange) and Sharon Stone. Verhoeven does not shy away from sex scenes, actually he must love them to direct them with such care and attention to details. Clearly Stone shares some of that passion and together star and director produce some red hot stuff here. There are also scary car chase scenes, gory kills, moments of amusement, a real sense of mystery - hairs on the back of the neck style and just a sheer love of cinema oozing from those lush and carefully chosen set-ups. Love it.

A great thriller with a great idea

A very wealthy, sexy but devious woman is accused of murdering a former partner and the case is being handled by a detective with a troubled past and an insecure present. He becomes attracted to her but as the time pasts, more and more people with connections to her get killed without a clear reason. As the story progresses, the detective is thrown away from side to side, not knowing who to blame or what to believe. He'll have to face his own problems first in order to get to the bottom of the mystery and this will prove to be a big challenge for him.

It's a thrilling movie which throws the viewer into the middle of a puzzling killing spree, with an apparently clear murderer which nobody seems capable of convicting. Although it has very good actors and very good story, it evolves slowly and apparently without any direction, maintaining a slow pace for about half of the movie. Its finale is also unexpected and leaves room for controversy but also for a sequel which, in this case, is actually a good thing. It indeed contributes to the mystery but I would have preferred a bit more pace. Despite that, it is a very good movie overall.

A Classic Hot Thriller

A violent, suspended police detective investigates a brutal murder, in which a manipulative and seductive woman could be involved. Even after 25 years Basic Instict remains a Classic and the ultra famous interrogation scene is still the hottest scene ever filmed. Sharon Stone and Michael Douglas have a terrific chemistry together and they both shine on Screen a lot. Jeanne Tripplehorn who received a lot of hate for her performance was also very good as Dr. Garner. The film is also very stylish and i love the cinematography a lot and it has Verhoeven's eye clearly. The film also has this entire mystery around it and sometimes i even felt like it went in a different direction and as if it tried to play with the viewers like who killed those people? who is the murderer? and what it's going on in general. Personally i don't understand why some critics hated the film? But then again i don't understand them either. Overall Basic Instict is a smart, sexy and above all an entertaining movie. (A+)
