Your mission: to watch the beautiful Sharon Stone (by john907)
You have to admit, Sharon Stone looks fabulous in "Sliver". Her appearance makes me captivated for the whole movie, and I think her short haircut is just perfect. And in odd ways, because of her, somehow I can enjoy the movie. So, your mission, should you choose to accept it: just sit back, relax, and watch the beautiful Sharon Stone.
Ever get that feeling you were being watched? (by bleak_solitude)
Not many movies can do what Sliver has accomplished. The fear and joy of voyeurism. Is it moral to watch your neighbors without them knowing, we all do it right? But one person has gone to far.You will feel scared and aroused!!! And the next time you walk around naked in your living room or hit your spouse in a heated argument, you may want to shut the blinds and turn off all the lights first.
You Like To Watch...Don't You! (by Ride-3)
Sliver is a sly, cunning piece of sex and eroticism based on the novel by Ira Levin and adapted by Joe Ezsterhas' seedy pen. Sharon Stone plays Carly Norris, a lonely Manhattan book editor who moves into a luxurious toothpick-thin the sliver of the title building. Two men, Zeke Hawkins, a computer game designer, and Jack Landsford, a burnt out author, compete for Carly's affections, but Zeke wins her. Very quickly residents of the building are being killed off, including Gus Hale, a man Carly briefly met, and Vida Warren, who appears to have had a secret relationship with Jack. Then <more>
Zeke reveals his most secret, private, intimate obsession to Carly: he is a compulsive voyeur and has every unit of the building wired with video cameras, and he watches everybody! Sliver is a very good mystery/suspense film that contains some graphic scenes of sexuality and true thrills.Sliver is Unrated for strong sexuality and nudity, mild violence and some gore, strong language and drug use.Note: The Unrated version of Sliver contains two minutes of additional sexual material cut from the film's theatrical release.
A sexy thriller in more ways the one (by boyinflares)
Out of 1993 comes "Sliver" the sexy top-notch thriller that is very well done, but slightly misses the mark towards the end. Sharon Stone's character Carly Norris is a respected book editor with pretty much no social life, until she moves to a new apartment building called Sliver Heights, where she meets William Baldwin's character Zeke Hawkins and the two form a very passionate relationship. Of course being a thriller, something isn't quite right, and so Carly searches to find out what is going on.Stone and Baldwin are both excellent in their leading roles. She's <more>
attractive, he's handsome and both are charismatic. There's some steamy scenes between the two of them, Stone's character is one that you can really care for. The supporting characters in "Sliver" actually do what supporting characters are supposed to - support. Tom Berenger's character the dodgy Jack Lansford is the "is he or isn't he" red-hearing, and is played well. Polly Walker plays the vampy Vid Warren, Carly's apartment neighbor, and is a good parallel to the reserved Carly. Colleen Camp is Judy Marks, Carly's incorrigible assistant and she is terrific. Finally, CCH Pounder plays the detective, Lt. Victoria Hendrix, though she is rather under-used here, this not being one of her best performances, probably because of the fact that she is under-used."Sliver" provokes some interesting topics of conversation for your next cocktail party, namely the notions of privacy and what would you do if you had the power to watch almost whoever you wanted, as Baldwin's character did. With the increasing notion of "Big Brother is watching you" in today's society, "Sliver" seems even more relevant to our lives. "Sliver" is presented in a glossy manner with a cool soundtrack and is relatively fast-paced. However, while the ending is effective, more could have been done to raise the notions of privacy that I previously talked about. Other than that, "Sliver" is a very sexy thriller.
Gives invasion of privacy a whole new meaning! (by GOWBTW)
I don't why many people put this movie down so bad. Anything with Sharon Stone is good. This movie is just as kinky as "Basic Instinct", only more high tech. Working for a publishing company is a hard job to take, even if you went through a rough marriage and trying to start over, finding yourself shouldn't be so hard. Not with Carly Norris Sharon Stone . She moves into a new high in New York called Sliver Heights, she gets a room which the deceased lived. and their she meets the owner Zeke Hawkins William Baldwin owns Sliver Heights, and he thinks he God. This man is not <more>
only the owner, he's the biggest voyeur of that complex. A voyeur Peeping Tom like him make others look like amateurs. I liked ever scene of this movie, the love scenes, the shower scenes, the conversation scenes, and he actually records them which I think is downright obscene. Sharon never looked any hotter in that movie, and he character is really hard core all the way. The author Jack Landford Tom Berenger seemed to be a decent character, however his shady past makes him the target for police. When he was killed, the murders stopped, but the voyeurism was way more sinister than the crimes earlier. So Zeke was given a major attitude adjustment there, and I think it's time for a new owner. This movie was really hardcore, imagine for what the unrated version would be like! Rating 3 out of 5 stars.
I saw this little blockbuster failure back in 2000, and I was surprised to why this film didn't receive a wide-span audience. Sharon Stone is finally a woman who is not the antagonist, but the heroine of the film. Billy Baldwin was sexy as the voyeur, who draws Sharon into his deadly web. Tom Berenger, on the other hand, was a character I didn't care for. He just wanted Sharon because she looked like the woman who was killed off Naomi Singer, played by Amanda Mackey, who by the way, looks VERY much like that of Sharon Stone . I quite liked the Brit neighbor, played by the quirky <more>
Polly Walker, who was vulgar to her agent and love interest toi Tom Berenger. I love the building, especially. The interiors and exteriors are simply breathtaking, as so are the cinematography of the city. See it on a hot day, for erotica purposes!!8/101993 108 minutes Rated: R CC.
