It's hilarious how worked up people got when this movie came out. The PC crowd decried the fact that a lesbian was the killer and, therefore, must have been the villan. The right wing crowd then immediately accused the PC crowd of being too hysterical about the alleged prejudice against homosexuals. Basic Instinct, they contended, was bad because it was a dirty movie. The producers, of course, loved all this publicity because EVERYONE went running to see the move and, in the words of Liberace, cried all the way to the bank. Telling audiences to not see a film because of homosexual activity and graphic sex scenes is like trying to scare ants away from a picnic by pouring sugar on the ground.
First of all, Sharon Stone's Catherine Trammell who is the killer lesbian (actually bisexual) in question, IS THE MOST SYMPATHETIC character in the whole film! EVERYONE is a slimebag! From Michael Douglas' hot tempered, tourist killing, chain smoking, cocaine snorting, oversexed police detective to Jeanne Tripplehorn's neurotic, kinky police psychiastrist who is more messed up than any of her patients to the rest of the morally compromised sleazes who pass for cops who laugh at murder victims and have the compassion and sensitivity of storm troopers, EVERY single character in this movie is a cesspool of a person! The way I see it, Sharon Stone is the most sympathetic person in the entire film -- at least she makes no bones about being sleazy. If you take the position that lesbians should be offended by their negative portrayal in Basic Instinct, then you could say the same for psychiatrists, cops (especially members of the SFPD), mystery writers, drug addicts, San Franciscans, smokers, country/western fans, chilli eaters, Mustang drivers and basically all human beings in general.

Basic Instinct is a 1992 American erotic thriller film. Film centers on police detective Nick Curran (Douglas), who is investigating the brutal murder of a wealthy rock star and he becomes involved in a torrid and intense relationship with mysterious prime suspect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Typical Michael Douglas film April 2 2013

Not a Michael Douglas fan but it was a bit of thriller and had some plot twists to it that were interesting. All in all a good movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Relied on erotic images to sell the film June 6 2004
By William
Format:DVD
BASIC INSTINCT is easily the most over-rated film of the 90's. I didn't like it in 1992, and watching the full uncut DVD version in 2004 I still feel the same.
BASIC INSTINCT tries to be a Hitchcock type film in many ways. Firstly, it has an annoying 'suspense' music score that plays throughout the film even when a scene doesn't warrant it. Next, the film reveals the killer but attempts to leaves you wondering if he/she is the real killer. The problem with BASIC INSTINCT is that it is so obvious that Sharon Stone is the killer. Not that we really care, afterall the storyline is so sleazy, that you feel no empathy for any of the characters.
The film relied on lots of erotic images to sell the film, and there is a reason for that. The Director must have realised from the begining that it was very ordinary storyline, and needed something to make it appealing. Problem solved: include lots of erotic images and a naked Sharon Stone ... and people will go to and see it for that alone. Clever marketing.
DVD SUMMARY: Basic Instinct has been released three times now on DVD, its first release way back in 1997. The version I saw was the second version which sports a DTS soundtrack, and some interesting special features. These include a "comparison with TV and Uncut version", and a documentary on the "making of" which reveals the problems that plagued the film set in San Fran. The DVD copy I have has a very soft film print which I would consider similar to VHS quality (it's that bad), however it is in Widescreen (five points for that).

4.0 out of 5 stars Instinct still Basic and going strong Jan. 26 2010
Format:DVD
I just watched this again and still found it enthralling.
Not the best Micheal Douglas show.
Sharon was intense and WAS completely "this author", living all aspects she had arrived at or in.

4 of 5

Basic Instinct 2 lost its way early and I felt I was following "bad" vampire story (not a bad vampire story).

5.0 out of 5 stars A sexy Sharon Stone movie Nov. 21 2009
Format:Blu-ray
This movie has a big interest. I love this movie so much when it shows Sharon Stone crossing her legs. The white outfit Sharon Stone wore is the biggest knockout any woman would want to have. I agree with this movie and I am a big Sharon Stone fan. The leg crossing is not in the sequel.
