About Basic Instinct

Basic Instinct is a popular English movie.

Movie Story

police detective Nick Curran is put in charge of the investigation of a brutal murder of a wealthy former singer. Beautiful, seductive and wealthy writer Catherine Tramell and the detective's karma leads him into a torrid and intense relationship with the mysterious woman, who also turns out to be very dangerous. At one point, Catherine is interrogated by a panel of police officers, all of them male. During the scene, Stone uncrosses and then re-crosses her legs. The camera angle allowed the audience to briefly get a glimpse up Stone's skirt, showing that she was not wearing any underwear.

The lighting setup allowed the audience to get a reasonably clear view of Stone's genitalia.
