Savant (vía DVD Talk)
Verhoeven's uninhibited glee for icky details apparently pays off here, for we buy the occasional clichéd scene, such as when Paul proves his capacity for tenderness by healing an injured seabird (which he ran over with a car, of course). Verhoeven also uses a partial flashback device, which comes off as as confusingly off-putting for a few minutes. That, and the freaky, brash sex in the first reel probably cleared all the prudes out of the theaters, to make room for the millions who made Turkish Delight the most popular Dutch film of all time. Recommended, but if the movie causes arguments or breaks up a relationship, don't blame Savant.
