1993. 106 min. Directed by Phillip Noyce.
“The view from the outside is nothing compared to the view from the inside,” teased the trailer for this 1993 erotic thriller starring it-girl Sharon Stone as Carly. Following a recent divorce, Carly moves into the elite Sliver building and becomes entangled in an intrigue involving a pair of suitors, a suspicious suicide, and a stranger who spies on her via hidden cameras. For artist Jon Wang, a secret VHS viewing of the film provided his first erotic cinematic memory: “Since I was homeschooled and raised in a cultish conservative Chinese immigrant family...it was moments like this, alone in other people’s homes, where I caught glimpses of the outside world.”
