Anything did pre-Basic Instinct will only really be watched by fans who want to see what her career was like before she was a movie star, and this film will undoubtedly be treated no differently than the rest. A zero-budget little scrapper made in Spain, it stars a ridiculously miscast (with a fake tan and oil-slicked hair) as an aspiring bullfighter who gets caught having an illegal nighttime bullfight on Stone’s property. She, an extremely wealthy half-American, half-Spanish heiress, becomes immediately obsessed with him and personally oversees his success in the bullring. Soon his personality becomes overtaken by his career, and he turns into the most obnoxious shit you’ve ever seen in your life, so much so that even Stone dumps him. Lovely photography of such a beautiful country, but the script is so flimsy and the acting not very good at all.
