THERE WAS A MAN WHO FELL FOR THE WOMAN WHO EVERYONE THOUGHT KILLED HER LOVER. SHE WAS BI-SEXUAL, LOTS OF SEX SCENES. THE MANS EX WIFE WAS ACTUALLY THE KILLER
The review of this Movie prepared by BLAIR




This 1992 film caused a sensation, which was probably just what Dutch-born director Paul Verhoeven (Robocop, Showgirls) and Hungarian-born writer Joe Eszterhas (Showgirls, Sliver) were looking for. San Francisco detective Nick Curran (Douglas), recovering from alcoholism and drug abuse, takes a murder case whose details exactly copy a mystery by attractive and manipulative novelist Catherine Tramell (Stone), who happens also to be bisexual. Curran gets far too wrapped up in the case and the prime suspect. Stone gives it her all in this grimy story that leaves you feeling dirty after watching it. Jeanne Tripplehorn and Denis Arndt do good supporting work. Stone's dresses were designed to match, in order, the ones worn by Kim Novak in Hitchcock's "Vertigo," an equally tricky but far better movie.

Michael Douglas has to find out who killed a rockstar. All evidence points at Sharon Stone, but did she do it? After all she wrote a book about a murder done in the same style.
