Mon

Borat, Film 4, 9pm. 2006 comedy film. The famous nude wrestling scene

Borat, Film 4, 9pm.



Basic Instinct, ITV 2, 0.35am. Far-fetched 1992 US thriller.

Former rock star and San Francisco nightclub owner Johnny Boz is found
murdered in his bed. Detective Nick Curran is assigned to the case; he
has a history of alcoholism and drug abuse although he is clean now.

The prime suspect is Catherine Tramell (a seeming lesbian or
bisexual), an attractive and manipulative novelist who had been seeing
Boz for a while.

Police psychiatrist Beth Gardner (who happens to be Nick's ex-
girlfriend) is brought in on the case when it is discovered that Boz's
murder was copied directly from one of Catherine's novels. Nick starts
to get too involved and everyone seems to be a suspect.


(Apparently some considered the film homophobic on release - and some
gays stood in front of cinema queues with the ending of the film given
away on their T-shirts, to ruin the ending etc. However IF you
actually see the ending, it's hard to work out WHAT could have been
printed on those T-shirts!)
