[on psychiatrist's couch]
I had the dream again. I'm arranging flowers, on a table, for a center piece. I decorate the flower pot with fancy paper. Feels like velvet. There are three different kinds of flowers. There are lilies, and there are... by the way, did you reach my sister?

Final Analysis, is a film that really puts a spin on psychological thrillers, and it's a spin I love. Re teaming here is Gere and Basinger after that forgettable No Mercy back in 87, and Basinger here shows no mercy when killing her rich and abusive gangster husband, (Roberts). Rightly so, he deserved to die as he's a real bastard to her, even in restaurants, where he gives Gere the bad eye, for ogling her. We then meet em' in the toilet, it's a bit of an tense and unnerving moment. Gere plays a psychiatrist, and he isn't bad, as is Basinger as the murderess, where I like Thurman's enigmatic and twisted performance more. FA does take a while to move along. Be patient. Stretching out to a two hour running time, he does beautifully flow as did Jennifer 8. We more so want Robert's to die, where too, there's layers to Basinger's motives besides ridding him of his abuse. And I really liked where this went. When Gere really finds out what happened, he himself is cornered, on the account of a missing attachment to a dumbbell, which has his prints on it, a no finer moment for Basinger who says threateningly to Gere, "Don't f with me Issac". I liked the fact too, that Keith David was in this as a hardened detective who doesn't approve of Gere's prognosis's, even suggesting David should have a session, after letting a young mentally ill Latino kid, free. Gere later uses him (and I'm glad the kid didn't die) to retrieve that missing piece of dumbbell. Basinger is bloody hot in this too, where she could almost smoke up a scene anywhere. The ending is one of the most suspenseful ones I've seen in a thriller, at that light house. The photography shots are awesome, where this film is pretty awesome, but I don't want to press it. One of the best best psychological dramas of 1992.
