This entry in the Basic Instinct sweepstakes poses the question: If love hurts, does sex kill? The judge and jury certainly want to find out when Rebecca's latest conquest, a multi-millionaire, dies of a heart attack while making love to her.

Overview

Madonna plays Rebecca Carlson, a sex bomb who parades naked in front of the open windows of her houseboat at all hours while the lobstermen catch crabs. This entry in the Basic Instinct sweepstakes poses the question: If love hurts, does sex kill? The judge and jury certainly want to find out when Rebecca's latest conquest, a multi-millionaire, dies of a heart attack while making love to her. Eight million dollars was bequeathed to Rebecca in his will, and District Attorney Robert Garrett Joe Mantegna is convinced that Rebecca, knowing that her rich lover had a weak heart, killed him with wild sex so that she could get her mitts on the money. Rebecca's lawyer, Frank Dulaney Willem Dafoe, thinks differently, suspecting the millionaire's private secretary Joanne Braslow Anne Archer of the crime, since she was dumped by the millionaire for Rebecca. Besides which, Frank is attracted to Rebecca himself and throws legal ethics out the window as he starts a sadomasochistic affair with her.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
Of all the erotic thrillers that came in the wake of Basic Instinct, Uli Edel's Body of Evidence is arguably the silliest. Although the screenplay attempts to titillate with kinky sex games, the dialogue is flat. Madonna's stale delivery does nothing to help the proceedings. Her Rebecca Carlson is so unappealing, such a non-entity as a human being, even an actor as talented as Willem Dafoe is unable to be credibly attracted to her. Dafoe keeps a pained look on his face throughout most of the film that is supposed to communicate an uncontrollable urge, but one gets the impression that the look betrays the actor's knowledge of how bad the film is. Director Uli Edel had some success in Germany and had achieved art-house respectability with Last Exit to Brooklyn, but Body of Evidence seemed to kill whatever career momentum he had built up to that point. This film is valuable only for pop-culture fiends who savor Madonna's cinematic train wrecks like Swept Away, Dangerous Game, and Shanghai Surprise (to name just a few).

    Poor excuse for a film

    Nothing but veiled pornography. No plot, pathetic acting . Just an excuse to get Madonna naked. The low point of both Willem Defoe and Joe Mantegna's career.
