In my mind, the best Sharon Stone movie yet...
5 November 1998 | by decoySee all my reviews

In Scissors, Sharon Stone builds a very believable picture of a young woman whose mental health begins to shatter while trapped in a penthouse apartment of her shrink. The role is difficult and Stone pulls it off wonderfully. I think this is the one movie in which she really gets to display her talent as an actress. It is truly amazing that this little gem has never got more attention - as a thriller, it's almost in the same series as the old Hitchcock movies...
