Paul Verhoeven rules
I just finished watching Katie Tippel, one of Paul Verhoeven's early Dutch films.
Co-worker bought this massive Paul Verhoeven box set earlier in the year and I've been going through his Dutch films.
Dude was THE MAN in Holland long before he did Basic Instinct, Robocop, Total Recall, and the like.
I highly recommend (in descending order):
The Fourth Man
Soldier of Orange
The films are in Dutch with English subtitles. Rutger Hauer is in most of them and he was THE MAN back in the day (pre-Blade Runner).
Verhoeven gets a bum rap for Basic Instinct, Starship Troopers, and of course Showgirls, but seriously, his Dutch work is phenomenal."Man, we killin' elephants in the back yard..."
