Product Description

Product Description

Isaac (Richard Gere) is a psychiatrist, treating a woman (Uma Thurman) with a recurring violent dream. He talks to the girl's sister Heather (Kim Basinger) and soon embarks on an illicit affair with her. She says she is falling in love with him, and promises to leave her Mafiosi husband. This threat turns deadly when she murders her spouse. Isaac must defend Heather in court by proving that she was temporarily insane, but are her claims of madness just a devious alibi?

From Amazon.co.uk

This film, which again pairs Richard Gere and Kim Basinger (who starred in 1986's No Mercy), offers up elements of classic noir: a hapless man becomes intimately involved with a beautiful blonde who may or may not be who or what she appears to be. Dedicated psychiatrist Isaac Barr (Gere) reluctantly, and then more obsessively, becomes involved with Heather Evans (Basinger), the sister of his patient, Diana Baylor (Uma Thurman). Evans is unhappily married to a gangster (appropriately played by a muscular and menacing Eric Roberts in a trademark role). Gere and Basinger make a credible, if dangerous couple, and Thurman delivers a subtle, understated performance and demonstrates her range and potential.

The thriller is appropriately shot in gorgeous San Francisco, where the literal and figurative curving and hilly roads wind throughout. Credit legendary art director Dean Tavoularis for some amazing sets and scenes, notably the elegantly cavernous restaurant where Evans and her husband have a fateful dinner.

This film is, in a way, glossy director Phil Joanou's Hitchcockian tribute--as a climactic lighthouse scene best demonstrates. Final Analysis doesn't offer an intimate look at its characters, but a beautifully stylized one, moody and gloomy. The intricate plot experiments with the device of "pathological intoxication," in which the subject completely loses control after drinking alcohol. And this doesn't mean a conventional ugly drunk; it means a frightening psychotic. Good and evil, hope and despair, beauty and repulsion are often juxtaposed in the film's complex world. --NF Mendoza

I thoroughly enjoyed Final Analysis and that was because there was plenty to think about in this slow-moving film with a substantial plot.Kim Basinger and Uma Thurman were excellent as the sisters from hell and Richard Gere put in a good turn as a naive psychiatrist who becomes less naive as the plot develops.There are some really great special effects /stunts in the film and you have to keep guessing what will happen next right to the end.

That's how I would summarize this movie. It is a typical US production, well crafted, with simple-enough characters, 2 + 1 handsome actors to please all. San Francisco views are picturesque and undoubtedly help make a pleasant movie. More effort could be placed to have a wittier dialogue, though.
You know Richard is good and, no matter what, he will end well. The mystery is which of the evil sister is really the bad one.
The final scene at the lighthouse reminds too closely of other movies (Hitchcock) and could have been replaced with something more original. It is a weak spot.
You tired from an afternoon spent gardening? or from a day at work? Watch this, and relax.
Oh, and remember, if you just met your girlfriend, please slide the conversation to pathological intoxication, to make sure she is free of it.

There are some great crime thrillers out there, and this is one of the best. It moves along at a good pace, and has some of the best acting by the lead actors. enjoyed the story, not sure if came before or after Basic instinct, but is certainly as good as, although not quite an 18 cert. Highly recommended.

A dark, psychological thriller starring Richard Gere as a psychiatrist who falls in love with the sister of one of his patients, Kim Basinger and Uma Thurman respectively.
I will not go into the plot which twists and turns, but what starts out as a rather slow film, picks up and reaches an exciting climax. The cast are very good and the atmosphere is chilling, ably supported by an extremely strong and effective soundtrack which sets the mood brilliantly.
Overall, it is a most watchable movie which reminds one of something from the Alfred Hitchcock stable.
Not bad at all.

This had the makings of a good movie if it focused on Heather's husband and his confrontation with Richard Gere. The husband is an echo of Heather's father who raped her as a child, but he is a character in his own right because he abuses Heather, but shrinks when he is challenged by a real man as represented by Gere. This shows that Heather's husband can only bully women rather than men, and it would have been good seeing Gere head to head with Heather's husband. Sadly, her husband only plays a small part in the film, and the rest of the movie tails off into a pedestrian storyline.

Not a good movie.

This film was defiantly bought for me as Richard Gear is more a woman,s actor always plays a part with a bit of romance in it, just wat I like when I am stuck in the house on a cold winter,s day with a cup of something hot and biscuits

Contemporary filmmakers going for something Hitchcockian generally succeed when it comes to the visuals, but often skimp on the characters and the set-up. A perfect example of someone getting it right is David Mamet's 'The Spanish Prisoner' which bypasses the big fireworks completely, taking the slow, methodical route to utmost believability. This, though, is a typically overblown piece of '90s moviemaking which actually features too many plot twists (yes, it is possible!) Phil Joanou, aided by Coppola's regular art guy, Dean Tavoularis, delivers an eye-popping Hitch' type visual thrill (the climactic lighthouse scene is a real treat on DVD), and the cast are top-notch (it wasn't like talent suddenly happened to Basinger prior to her Oscar victory, and she's great here as the film's howlin' nasty) but ultimately, the film serves as brain candy for one night only, and certainly isn't destined for anyone's hall of fame.

Classic film from 1992 sees Richard Gere and Kim Basinger in this atmospheric thriller. A good plot with a twist and a similar feel to Basic Instinct which was released the same year. Richard Gere plays a psychiatrist who becomes involved with one of his patients sister (Kim Basinger), when she is arrested for the murder of her husband all is not as it seems. Worth a watch if you enjoy the old classic suspense thrillers.
