A look behind the scenes at one of the more controversial thillers of the 90's, and the one that made Sharon Stone a top-name star. Includes interviews with Stone and footage of some of the hard work that went into making the movie, as well as some discussion of the problems the makers had to deal with, including protests from groups who wanted the film changed or simply abandoned.

This 24 minute retrospective on the movie "Basic Instinct" can be located on the Special edition DVD of the aforementioned movie. It features interviews with Director Paul Verhoeven as well as other crew members and goes into composing, the acting, story and whatnot, typical stuff. Too much time is spent over gushing over Sharon Stone. Yet the most interesting aspect of the documentary is the gay controversy, I really hate that they caved in and let them have their say on this. I strongly doubt that the film makes would cave in even a little if say a Catholic group were protesting instead. In defense to the film makers the gay groups do come off as f$#%ing nuts.
