  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Basic Instinct

    Excellent travail, de bonne facture... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Basic Instinct

    Rewatch. Probably Verhoeven's best-looking film. Like Argento's Tenebrae, it looks like it could take place in the future.

  3. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Basic Instinct

    Reappraising this after a few years' absence it actually wears it's venal vulgarities with a contagious swagger. Utter twaddle but it knows where it's going and proceeds there over the speed limit using the highest lead fuel possible. This high octane cheek is sadly missing from much contemporary mainstream cinema. Goldsmith's gorgeous score is silkily sly.

  5. kartina obskura's rating of the film Basic Instinct

  6. mimivulturul's rating of the film Basic Instinct

  7. Rocco's rating of the film Basic Instinct

    Grubby sleaze buffed to a high gloss shine. It's divisive feminist thinker Camille Paglia's favorite movie (she provides a commentary track on the blu-ray) which only makes the whole thing so much more intriguing.

  8. msmichel's rating of the film Basic Instinct

    25 years later Verhoeven's take on the American thriller is still an adrenaline rush of sex, perversion and murder. Jerry Goldsmith's now classic score drives the film as does Verhoeven's audacity in drawing performance and making use of a very Hitchcockian San Francisco. The controversial elements have long since dissipated leaving a strong thriller behind despite its third act problems from writer Joe Eszterhas.

  9. anacecil's rating of the film Basic Instinct

    Una película de suspenso, la muerte se confunde entre la realidad y la ficción

  10. GIYGAS's rating of the film Basic Instinct

    No one told me that this movie rules but then again I should have already known

  11. Loud Rocks's rating of the film Basic Instinct

  12. tgmf's rating of the film Basic Instinct

  13. OldGermanCurrency's rating of the film Basic Instinct

  14. Ariel Rowan's rating of the film Basic Instinct

    nick is horrible ! catherine is beautiful !

  15. Ethan's rating of the film Basic Instinct

    This is a very intense and sexy thriller that is very Verhoeven and very early 90s. Plus the Sharon Stone vagina flash is pretty epic.

  16. smndvdcl's rating of the film Basic Instinct

    The homicidal seductress has become a film stereotype, largely due to this iconic, but overrated Verhoeven erotic thriller.

  17. Drew Kelly's rating of the film Basic Instinct

    a little heavy handed with the gratuitous symbolism and plot twists (I'm thinking of the final act and denouement here)

  18. Mr.Pacha's rating of the film Basic Instinct

  19. Thomas O'Neill's rating of the film Basic Instinct

    This is a decent movie with iconic scenes and good performances. But again, I don't care much for the story. Paul Verhoeven is a great director who chooses screenplays that I have little to no interest in. Too bad.

  20. ceknklsn's rating of the film Basic Instinct

  21. Superfrog's rating of the film Basic Instinct

    Takes B movie genre and adds some proper film skills, in cinematography and script, in so making it an actually impressive piece. The contrary of Tarantino deathproof, in a way.
