Plot
Sliver and Basic Instinct are perfect companion pieces. They have in common a young and sexy Sharon Stone involved in tumultuous relationships. In Basic Instinct, she’s the enemy. Here, she’s the protagonist. William Baldwin plays the love interest. Little does she know that a complex camera system where she lives allows someone to spy on all the tenants.
This is the quintessential erotic thriller, and it’s happening between the walls of a skyscraper, a type of location the movies of the 1980’s and the 1990’s are big on. Skyscrapers grant direct access to the city, they have an amazing urban view, and they’re an excellent setting for a modern suspense. This is based on a novel by Ira Levin who also wrote Rosemary’s Baby.
This isn’t porn, but there is partial nudity; male and female, so everyone gets their share. Imagine soft core kinky sex between a man and a woman over a period of time, but with an ominous element of suspense; an anonymous murderer and a stalker, precisely, who may very well be the same person. Everything from the script to the acting, here, is spotless.
