I’m a big Paul Verhoeven fan, but lately he’s gone quiet other than the short Dutch film Tricked, which unfortunately I haven’t seen. I like his movies because they take concepts that other people could have done poorly, and injects them with an electric mixture of weirdness and danger. Even Showgirls, which is reviled, is celebrated for being so bad it’s good. While his previous films Total Recall and RoboCop were watered down into forgettable remakes, Verhoeven is still willing to court controversy, and his next movie will almost certainly do that.
