Books Never Underestimate Paul Verhoeven

In Showgirls: Portrait of a Film, Paul Verhoeven identified his horrifically hilarious 1995 stripper drama as “a Christian morality tale.”
Now Verhoeven’s going to Christianity’s source, writing a biography of Jesus that will be published in the Netherlands in September.
According to the Associated Press, the book will be published in the U.S. in 2009. The title alone is worthy of a prize, and perhaps a pie in the face: Jesus of Nazareth: A Realistic Portrait.
If the book’s portrait of Jesus is half as accurate as Showgirls portrayal of women, I’ll be in heaven.
