Product Description


Frequently given short shrift as a blue movie (which it is) and as mindless (which it isn't), director Adrian Lyne's follow-up to Flashdance (insert own joke here) is a thoughtful, smutty film about a bad sexual relationship. It follows the two-month affair between Elizabeth, an art-gallery dealer, and John, a Wall Street exec. The relationship spirals downward into raunchier sex (filmed, by the way, quite nicely) but principally is about two adults doing adult things but not acting anything like real adults. Attempts at actual human connection, about the longing to be "good," are present here and make this an above-average erotic film. Rourke is just honing his scumbag, bad-boy persona; but it doesn't overwhelm. Lots and lots of Kim Basinger. --Keith Simanton

5.0 out of 5 stars 9 1/2 Weeks (Original uncut) May 16 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw this film when it first came out and it really made me think of how easy it is for men to control your every thought and even emotions especially when you are in love with them. I enjoyed the film. It's not to everyone's taste but I just love Kim Basinger.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the prudish... May 4 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Very intriguing combination of erotica & storytelling. Does make one contemplate the fine line between pleasure & abuse. I recommend this film to those who are willing to ask themselves where they place that line.

Intersting story line and often curious about what it is all about since it first came out years ago! A young man's wild fantasy indeed!

5.0 out of 5 stars genius subtext. . . a brave american film. . . Oct. 11 2003
This is one of my favorite films of all time. Kim Basinger is poignant and astounding. Her wounded eyes that belie the sexual obsession is such an affective contrast.Her performance is impeccable.
The plot is disturbing and yet common. I was turned on, infuriated, and -worst of all- familiar with the subject matter. Notice the subtle things that change as Elizabeth falls deeper into this sadistic union. (the darkening clothing and make-up for instance)
This nothing short of an American classic and one of the only films I want to own.
I also recommend the novel of the same name!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Craftful Cinematography....a fine work. Jan. 14 2004
Format:VHS Tape
If you've gotten this far in the reviews, you'll notice that either people love this film or hate it. It's pretty much right down the middle, which in a way, is a reflection of American societal attitude towards it's own sexuality.
If your own sexual world isn't aware there's something other than the missionary position, chances are you'll see this as a vulgar, disgusting film. The world that John draws Elizabeth into is a very psychologically complicated and sophisticated one. If you can't identify with lifestyles like that, you can't understand how or why they exist.
Personally, I found this film a masterpiece, not so much from the story line, but the mechanics of it. The cinematography is nothing short of breathtaking. Subject matter debates aside, this is a beautifully photographed film. Camera angles, lens choices, it's obvious the director worked very closely with the cinematographer in capturing on film exactly the image he had in his head. I can't say enough about the beauty of this film.
I thought both of the principals turned in exceptional performances, even though I view Rourke as a below-average actor. This film is easily his best, which actually could be said of Basinger as well. The Casting Dept. did a good job on this one.
Bar none, Basinger's strip tease (done with very little nudity) goes on my "All-Time Best Scenes List". The music choice, Joe Cocker's "You Can Leave Your Hat On" was a stroke of genius!
Alas, years after it's debut it's the subject matter that is remembered, and I find it still holds up. I'd suggest this film highly. Careful though, you may get more than you bargain for if you make it a "first date" flick to watch!

5.0 out of 5 stars What can I say Sept. 9 2003
What can I possibly say that hasn't already been said. Great movie that open my eyes to just how great it could be to fulfill fantasies and the consequences that not saying how you feel can have. Granted when I first was the movie I was a 17 year old college freshman and still very virginal. The music for the movie was just as good as the movie. A must own for anyone who likes Mickey.

3.0 out of 5 stars Zzzzzz Sept. 29 2008
Elizabeth (Kim Bassinger) works at an art gallery in New York City. She meets John (Mickey Rourke), a mysterious, wealthy stranger, and they begin a torrid affair. He's into game playing; he likes to tell her what to do and she does it, even when it scares her. He wants to control her completely and she lets him, for nine and a half weeks.

When this came out in 1986, it was considered shocking; today one can see almost this much sensuality on TV and certainly in many movies, so its impact has diminished. The steamy, dangerous, erotic night scenes are balanced by the cold, sterile day scenes of Elizabeth's work. The photography is striking with costumes and sets in shades of black and white and close-ups designed to heighten our sensory awareness. Bassinger and Rourke are well-cast but I didn't care about or like either of them. Their situation seemed improbable and repellent.

The movie could certainly be titillating, but I found it upsetting and scary and sometimes even boring.
