Movie Review by BillyBob
May 11th, 2010

AN IDIOT'S STANCE ON VOYEURISM

How exquisitely divine it is that a bomb like SLIVER would be the film to immediately follow SHARON STONE's phenomenal "BASIC INSTINCT" success.

This film (and all the others that have followed) has certainly proved quite clearly to me that STONE's so-called "notable" performance in BASIC INSTINCT was pretty much just a fluke, and nothing else.

SLIVER (from 1993) was deservedly nominated for 7 Razzie Awards (including Worst Actress and Worst Picture), but for some inexplicably weird reason it didn't win a damn thing. (Tsk. Tsk. What a shame)

This film's story is so screwy that it actually goes so far as to suggest that it's all a part of human nature to want to secretly observe people and thus intentionally invade upon their privacy.

35 year-old Carly Norris, a stringy-haired, NYC Book Editor, moves into the tres' exclusive Sliver Tower where a number of mysterious deaths have taken place.

It certainly doesn't take long for our sweet, demure, little Carly to start to show her true colors by getting into regular humping sessions with one of Sliver's eligible, young studs, which, of course, gives Director PHILLIP NOYCE plenty of opportunity to pad this flick's shallow and trashy story with oodles and oodles of simulated sex scenes, "SHARON STONE"-Style.

Carly soon begins to mistrust her manly stud and this inevitably leads to all sorts of ridiculous suspicions and accusations. And, then, of course, we end up with a climatic finale that is utterly laughable to the 10th power.

What more can I say?
