Ep. 187 - Jerry Goldsmith's 'Basic Instinct'
Score Cue Snapshots! • Drama, Mystery, Thriller, 10-Oct-2022
Who can forget Verhoeven's neo-nor thriller from 1992? No-one. This is a masterpiece by Jerry Goldsmith, and it garnered him nominations for both an Academy Award and Golden Globe Award.
Goldsmith said, "Basic Instinct was probably the most difficult I've ever done. It's a very convoluted story with very unorthodox characters. It's a murder mystery, but it isn't really a murder mystery. The director, Paul Verhoeven, had a very clear idea of how the woman should be, and I had a hard time getting it. Because of Paul pushing me, I think it's one of the best scores I've ever written. It was a true collaboration."
Watch the film if you can.
