Basic Instinct 2

(USA/Germany/GB, 2006, 114 minutes)

A renowned psychiatrist falls for the murder suspect he was asked to evaluate — a brilliant, manipulative crime writer. Stylish psychological thriller that is not so much a sequel to the notorious 1992 original (Basic Instinct, directed by Paul Verhoeven with Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone) as a variation with one character in common; despite a plot eventually too convoluted for its own good, it’s certainly better (but not much) than one was led to expect.

Vajna, in association with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, present a C2 Pictures/Intermedia Films production in association with IMF Internationale Medien & Film 3, with the participation of Grosvenor Park Media.
