Basic Instinct

Basic Instinct(1992)

"Basic Instinct" is the type of interesting film that is both insane and calm at the same time. If you are watching anyone besides Michael Douglas on screen, they seem almost as if nothing has happened. As the opening scene of the film shows a very sexual murder, the remainder is about trying to put together the pieces as to who actually killed this man. It may not be a perfect movie, due to the predictability, but it sure has you guessing. I really enjoyed watching this film and I almost came to love it, until the final shot of the film. The last shot throws the entire film through a loop and makes everything confusing. This is a great film at it's core, but sometimes falls flat. Still, I loved watching it.
