Maybe these people don't know Paul Verhoeven's work very well, but it's his director's trademark to have nudity. Everyone mentions Showgirls, which is the easy example. Robocop has the coed shower scene. Total Recall has the alien with three boobs. Hollow Man, Starship Troopers and Basic Instinct as well. I've never seen any of his European movies, but I can't imagine that he started that trend with Robocop.

I'm excited to see what he does with this movie.

Go rent his international breakthrough film, Soldier of Orange NOW.

Powerful. Thrilling. Definitive.

Thank you, LB. I've been meaning to watch one of Verhoeven's 'good' films for years, and never knew where to start..

Out of curiousity, just what is
"sexy shots of pubic hair"?

TIA for any and all replies.

I'm a huge fan of Paul Verhoeven's whole career. He's always had a weird blend of European artiness and trashiness in all of his movies. In some the balance works better than others.

I'm very excited about him going back to smaller European movies as I think that should get his bearings in better shape after just a little too much straight Hollywood influence has made his last couple of movies pretty flaccid.

I recommend that you Google for your answer. Especially if you're at work!

WOW 389,000 possible sites......added the word gay, less sites, oh well.

Honestly, had never thought of this fine use for Google.

Need never buy a skin mag again.

No wonder high school kids are almost non educated.
