Sadly, this is a very unfulfilling weekend at the movies for genre nuts as only limp dramas (Labor Day) and horrendous romantic comedies (That Awkward Moment) are debuting on screens. Thankfully, for those of us in Toronto the TIFF Bell Lightbox is there to help. They’re currently running a retrospective of cult favorite filmmaker Paul Verhoeven, partially due to the impending release of the inevitably disappointing remake of his masterpiece Robocop in a few weeks. The Dutch bad boy has long been one of the most misunderstood and fascinating figures kicking around the film world. So with all of his movies about to add a little welcome sleaze to the squeaky-clean screens of the Lightbox the time seemed right to provide a primer for one of the filthiest and secretly genius filmmakers you might not be aware that you love.
