Format: DVD
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.

By E. Valero TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Feb. 23 2015
Format: Blu-ray
Michael Douglas plays Nick Curran, a troubled detective who is investigating the ice-pick murder of rock star. The prime suspect is the victim's lover, the overtly-sexual Catherine Tramell, a beautiful, blonde mystery novelist who shows no remorse and is in the habit of not wearing any under-clothing. Curran falls under his suspects seductive spell and what follows is a hi-speed cat and mouse game which leaves several dead and one incredibly confused cop.

Although Sharon Stone was making movies a full decade before this film was made ("Deadly Blessings", "King Solomon's Mines"), it was this raunchy, erotic thriller that finally put the blonde on the map. "Basic Instinct" became a massive hit when it was first released in 1992. The media had a field day covering the scandal this film caused. Religious groups were bothered by the sexually explicit images depicted in the film and the Gay community was infuriated of the negative portrayal of homosexuals. The public in general didn't seem to mind since "Basic Instinct" ended up grossing over $100 million domestically. I guess we were all entranced by Sharon Stone's slick, icy beauty and the infamous leg crossing scene.

Whatever one thinks of the film, few will deny that Sharon Stone is one of the film's highlights. She steals every single scene she's in and her performance is captivating and it's not just because of her incredible look. It's how she delivers her lines, her body language, her voice, her cool demeanor. She mastered the art of seduction and we can clearly see why men would fall prey to her dark charms. These elements along with the witty dialogue all contribute in to making Catherine Tramell one of the greatest screen villians ever.
