It's alone just worth seeing this if you are a fan of either
Michael Douglas or Sharon Stone since they are
quality actors with such charisma. You can't seriously think of anyone who would have been more ideal to play their roles
in a picture such as "Basic Instint."
In this movie, Nick,(Michael Douglas)the investigator, cant stop himself from playing into her game. I wont tell you what the game is for. Shes such a sophisticated, accomplished bombshell who can lure any guy, ummmm (or certain girls, heehee!)
Surely she wouldnt be bold enough to kill the man in the exact way like she wrote in her book just because she used him. She voluntarily takes a lie detector test, no problem.
Is she the real murduress? Obsessive Nick will do anything and everything to uncover this case no matter what.
"Basic Instinct" is a very smart, steamy exciting thriller that keeps you wondering. You'll be wanting to watch it soon again just to pick up on some things.
I own this standard edition DVD & it gives you the option of
seeing the movie in either full or wide screen which is really
nice. Unfortunately, I have yet to see the collector's edition which has not been out very long.

This film pushes the limits of social boundaries. It is full of bloody scenes and some really vivid sex scenes. It is truly erotic to say the least. Basic Instinct is very possibly a Hitchcock style murder thriller, but I think that Hitchcock may have believed in a form of depiction that would have been closer to having a veiwer use more imagination.
A violent icepick murder seems to have been taken right out of the mian characters most recent novel. Arrogant and cool, she entertains the police investigators ideas that she may have been the murderer. This of course took place during the all too famous interogation scene where she crosses her legs and shoots the detectibes an eyeful of her personal area. Curran of course investigates her and gets a little too close. In the process he compromises his integrity and his relationship with his current girlfriend by getting caught in her web.

Basic Instinct is a film written in a truly dark manner that at times will leave you either frustrated or uncomfortable, and will always keep you on the edge of your seat. Most will enjoy this one.

Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone use sex as a weapon as Douglas's character investigates the shocking murder of one of Stone's lovers. More of an acquaintance she slept with than a lover, the aging rock star is repeatedly stabbed with an ice-pick, the same fate met by a fictitious rock star in a torrid novel Stone's character had written. The book so baldly links Stone's character to the murder that it's less a clue than an alibi. (Who would be crazy enough to commit a horrible crime and essentially confess by selling a ficionalized version of the gory event at $5.99 a-pop to beachgoers and frequent fliers?) Though Douglas, as "Nicky", pursues the case with an eye towards collaring Stone's Catherine Trammel, nobody else on his force will touch her - some are in awe of her as fans, or simply don't want to try pinning the murder based on her book. It soon becomes clear that nobody really likes Nick - his partner, played by "Law & Order" alum George Dzunda, is one of his few friends on the force, but even he admits that he's in the minority; a former lover played by Jeanne Tripplehorn also has a rocky relationship to Nick - she's also the PD psychiatrist, and Nicky's given her enough material to write a book of her own. When Nick remains determined to get even closer to Trammel, we quickly learn that he has a history himself (Stone calls him "Nicky" like his ex-wife used to and, to really clue him in to his transparency, "Shooter"; it seems that Nicky has a rep for jumping to conclusions with his police 9mm), and Stone's Catherine Tramell turns his demons against him. Nevertheless, Tramell needs Nick - he's the perfect model for a character in one of her new books.Read more ›

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.

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

I'm sorry, but this is just a ridiculous movie.
To me, the writing is stilted and feels false, for lack of a better word. The acted is consistently overdone and the direction is so calculated and false (again) that, to my mind, this movie is simply a waste of time. As a study of supposedly "kinky" sex, again, just dumb; it feels to me to be so obviously done to titilate the mainstream.
So many movies have been done so much better on so many levels than this thing. Just pathetic to see attention given to junk like this.
As a comparison, I happened to see The Godfather just prior to this and the feel of the two movies in comparison was so striking that this utterly paled. Granted, few films stand a chance when put against The Godfather, but this was so abrupt I was astounded at the utter badness of Basic Instinct.
Again, to me this is pure junk.
