ELLE
2016, Sony Pictures Classics, 130 min, France/ Germany/ Belgium, Dir: Paul Verhoeven

Director Paul Verhoeven and star Isabelle Huppert both reach career peaks with this complex psychological thriller. Huppert stars as a successful video game executive who is raped in her home; rather than go to the police, she identifies her masked attacker and engages him in a twisted cat-and-mouse game. “A masterpiece of suave perversity, the movie leads its audience through a meticulously constructed maze of ambiguity, scrambling our assumptions and expectations at every turn.” - A. O. Scott, The New York Times.


ROBOCOP
1987, Park Circus/MGM, 102 min, USA, Dir: Paul Verhoeven

Peter Weller stars as a murdered Detroit police officer who is brought back to life as an unstoppable cyborg cop in director Paul Verhoeven’s action-packed satire.


TOTAL RECALL
1990, Rialto Pictures, 113 min, USA, Dir: Paul Verhoeven

Future-time 2084: Construction worker Arnold Schwarzenegger tries to escape his nightmares by taking a mind-vacation to Mars - trouble is, he’s already been there, in director Paul Verhoeven’s brutally surreal, wickedly funny adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale." Sharon Stone literally kicks out the jams as Arnold’s murderously sexy "wife" with help from uber-villain Michael Ironside.
