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.
