So far, my top-6 Paul Verhoeven films are, in arbitrary order:
The Fourth Man
Flesh and Blood
I do want to make space for RoboCop among the top-6, and if I made the mini-list on another day, RoboCop might be on it.
Voices from the film world on Elle:
"This thriller is Paul Verhoeven at his very best and Isabelle Huppert gives the performance of a lifetime. Elle promises to be a hit with audiences."
- Sony Pictures
"A striking return for the Dutchman. We didn't dare dream of such an audacious, generous film."
- Cahiers du cinéma, Paris, France
