Basic Instinct (1992)

Directed by
Paul Verhoeven

The now-classic thriller stars Sharon Stone as a sensual bisexual writer who may also be a multiple murderess. Michael Douglas is the cop charged with finding the truth; but such is her allure, he becomes too closely involved. Ignoring director Paul Verhoeven's infamous shot of a certain part of Stone's anatomy, this film, scripted by Joe Jagged Edge Eszterhas, is a superior psychological chiller, with the two leads both superb.
