And now comes Basic Instinct 2 (trailer). Of course Basic Instinct (trailer) was not made in the ’70s. Or even the ’80s. But after watching the film for the first time last night in preparation for this weekend’s opening, I gotta say it’s a classic ’70s flick – encapsulated by the pansexual disco dancing scene in the Limelight-like church with Sharon, Michael Douglas, and the foxy Roxy in a groovy menage a twat. Pure Glitter.
As for Basic Instinct 2, I’ve only seen the trailer. As is to be expected Sharon Vonne Stone looks considerably younger than she did 14 years ago, but seems to move with more deliberation, as if they took away the crutches just before calling “action.” Maybe Basic Instinct 2 will go down as a remake of Century Sex – where we all can agree instincts have not been baser.
