Critics reviews

The filmmakers are clearly bored with this material, an attitude that isn’t obscured by the good secondary cast (Charlotte Rampling, David Thewlis), the decision to set the shrink’s office inside the phallic Swiss headquarters, or the mention of Jacques Lacan. They’re so bored they try to rewrite history by suggesting that the ability of desire to destroy professional and personal authority — the theme of The Blue Angel – is what made the original Basic Instinct a hit.
