A San Francisco detective is assigned to investigate the murder of a rock star and begins to fall in love with the number one suspect.
The movie which will always be remembered for one particular interrogation scene was also the centre of controversy and the cause of several protests from gay rights activists upon its release, is actually a brilliant thriller and has an ending which you kind of saw coming but didn't... if you know what I mean? ~ The Lord

The best film noir of recent times. Verhoeven and Eszterhas have created a decadent assault on the sensibilities. Sharon Stone simply burns up the screen. George Dzundza is great in the John-Goodman-doomed-sidekick role. ~ The Sloth

Followed fourteen years later by Basic Instinct 2.
