This is a very inventive and somewhat amateurish early from Paul Verhoven. I have a sneaking suspicion that he’d seen films from both Davids Lynch and Cronenberg at this point.
Such a strange film. There are bits I like enormously, but the pacing just seems… off. And most of the actors are pretty dire.
I really enjoyed this, and I was smiling the whole time, but still:
The Fourth Man. Paul Verhoeven. 1983. Netherlands.
