Paul Verhoeven

Paul Verhoeven directed his first film Een Hagedis Teveel in 1960, followed by the TV series Floris and the box office hit Turks Fruit (Turkish Delight) starring Monique van der Ven and Rutger Hauer. His next exploits were Keetje Tippel (Katie Tippel), Soldier of Orange, Spetters and De Vierde Man (The Fourth Man). In 1999 Turks Fruit (Turkish Delight) was honoured as the Best Dutch Film of the Century; it was also nominated for the Oscar for Best Foreign Film. Verhoeven's international breakthrough came with RoboCop, followed by the box office hits Total Recall and the trailblazing Basic Instinct. In 1997 he made Starship Troopers, an indictment of the establishment; Hollow Man (2000) is his most recent Hollywood film.
