A biography of the Dutch film director, Paul Verhoeven, whose early art-house films included "The Fourth Man". He later moved to Hollywood, where he had major box-office successes with "Robocop", "Total Recall" and "Basic Instinct".
Paul Verhoeven is one of the most controversial directors in contemporary cinema. Born in the Netherlands on the eve of World War II, Paul Verhoeven's childhood was marked by the trauma of his country's occupation by the Nazi's. After studying mathematics, he yielded to hie true calling - the cinema. Since then his artistic output has cut through contemporary culture like a razor blade, producing such films as The Fourth Man, Robocop, Basic Instinct and Starship Troopers - works dealing with the struggle for survival in a hostile world, the drive for sex, man's inclination for evil, the quest for redemption and man's inability to find true happiness.
