Movie Review by AJ
August 14th, 2006

This is the first movie written by the infamous Joe Eszterhas that I've had the "pleasure" of seeing. As expected from what I've heard, it's filled with sex, dumb intrigue, and not much else. Reportedly, even Eszterhas hates this movie. That can't bode well. Sliver attempts to deal with the theme of voyeurism, and even goes so far as to suggest that it's a natural part of our being. It's a very interesting theme, and could've been employed to great effect, but unfortunately, Sliver is no Rear Window. All I got was that William Baldwin's creepy high-tech voyeur really likes to bang Sharon Stone's book editor. A lot. There are lots of hilariously unsteamy sex scenes, and I can imagine Stone must've felt somewhat lazy, having just come off of the sexcapades adventure Basic Instinct (which I have not seen...and, no, I don't have much interest in doing so either). The film slowly crawls to its dull, unsurprising climax, and comes to a simplistic conclusion far undeserving of its earlier thoughts and ideas, half-baked though they may have been.

I love the random and horrible movies that people review on this site.

I actually don't think I ever saw this, but I remember when it came out that it seemed that it was pretty much just trying to jump on the ol' Sharon Stone BASIC INSTINCT bandwagon.

Yeah, I love that too.

See, I have HBO On Demand, and I figure I may get my money's worth out of it, so I watch EVERY movie on it...
