My MOVIE REVIEWS - BASIC INSTINCT

When I saw this classic was on last night, it occurred to me that whilst A) - I have seen it before and B) I have seen it more than once - that it had been quite some years since I last watched it from start to finish, and I was started to realised the film is now over 20 years old - 1992!!

From the start, I was hooked into this gripping thriller. I had forgotten how stunning Sharon Stone is, and how chiselled Michael Douglas was and what a great combination they make. The clever plot still twists and turns, and is none the worse for knowing they are coming. The ending is still a puzzle - was it her, or was it not? That final shot of the ice pick leaves you guessing.

I would definitely recommend a revisit to this beautifully shot, erotic thriller as it is one of the best of its kind. I thought it was great then, and if anything, compared with some of the more recent attempts in this field, I think I hold it even higher in ranking. I can't actually think of anything negative to say about this film at all so i give this one a well deserved 9 1/2 out of 10.
