THE QUICK AND THE DEAD
1995, Sony Repertory, 107 min, USA, Dir: Sam Raimi

Evil sadist Gene Hackman meets his match when a gun-slinging Sharon Stone enters his town looking for revenge in Sam Raimi's hyperkinetic Western. A stellar supporting cast, including Russell Crowe, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lance Henriksen and Woody Strode, adds energy to this love letter to the spaghetti Westerns of Sergio Leone.


BASIC INSTINCT
1991, Sony Repertory, 127 min, USA, Dir: Paul Verhoeven

Director Paul Verhoeven’s super-steamy erotic thriller pits embittered police detective Michael Douglas against the bisexual queen of femmes fatale, Sharon Stone, a twisted goddess and writer who may just be the ice-pick murderer the cops are searching for. Joe Eszterhas’ screenplay is notoriously politically incorrect in this extremely entertaining chess game of terminal seduction.


CASINO
1995, Universal, 178 min, USA, Dir: Martin Scorsese

The mob places master sports bookie Ace Rothstein (Robert De Niro) in Las Vegas to run the town, a plan that goes awry when Ace falls for opportunistic hooker Ginger (Sharon Stone in an Academy Award-nominated and Golden Globe-winning performance). Cinematically spectacular.
