It borders on pornography, and
that's okay, as long as there's a
story to tell. And there is; Kim
Basinger, entranced into Mickey
Rourke's sadistic world, tries to free
herself from it. Some of the most
incredibly erotic scenes to date can't

the story. We're mostly concerned
here about the story, right? Well...
