Final Analysis ★★½ 1992 (R)

Glossy thriller starring Gere as a San Francisco psychiatrist who falls for the glamorous sister of one of his patients. Basinger plays the femme fatale and Thurman is Gere's sexually neurotic patient. Although heavily influenced by “Vertigo,” this film never comes close to attaining the depth of Hitchock's cinematic masterpiece. Roberts gives the most gripping performance in this slick suspense movie as Basinger's sleazy gangster husband. 125m/C VHS, DVD . Richard Gere, Kim Basinger, Uma Thurman, Eric Roberts, Paul Guilfoyle, Keith David, Robert Harper, Jolyon Baker, Harris Yulin, Agustin Rodriguez; D: Phil Joanou; W: Wesley Strick, Robert Berger; C: Jordan Cronenweth; M: George Fenton.
