Basic Instinct

Basic Instinct

Rechercheur Curran werkt aan een zaak waarin de schrijfster en verleidster wordt verdacht van een moord die doet denken aan een misdaad uit haar boek

Onze opinie:
Een waar meesterwerk van Paul Verhoeven met glansrollen van Michael Douglas en Sharon Stone waarbij die laatste zelfs Glenn Close (Fatal Attraction) overschaduwt als “femme fatale”

During the investigation, Nick meets Catherine Tramell, a crime novelist who was Boz's girlfriend when he died. Catherine proves to be a very clever and manipulative woman, and though Nick is more or less convinced that she murdered Boz, he is unable to find any evidence. Later, when Nilsen, Nick's rival in the police, is killed, Nick suspects of Catherine's involvement in it. He then starts to play a dangerous lust-filled mind game with Catherine to nail her, but as their relationship progresses, the body count rises and contradicting evidences force Nick to start questioning his own suspicions about Catherine's guilt.
