Rated 4 out of 5

“Basic Instinct” is a 1992 American erotic thriller film directed by Paul Verhoeven and written by Joe Eszterhas. The movie stars Sharon Stone and Michael Douglas, and follows a police detective who becomes involved in a dangerous and seductive game of cat-and-mouse with a mysterious and manipulative writer.

The film was highly controversial upon its release, due to its explicit sexuality and violence. It was a box office success, grossing over $350 million worldwide, and received mixed reviews from critics. However, it has since become a cult classic and is considered a landmark film of the erotic thriller genre.

Sharon Stone’s performance in the film, particularly her infamous leg-crossing scene, made her a sex symbol and propelled her to international stardom. The film’s success also led to a sequel, “Basic Instinct 2”, which was released in 2006.
