  • Facts of life

    Paul Verhoeven

    A director who loved to make violent films, Paul Verhoeven never had the penchant to make fairytale romances but liked to show the realism to the hilt. His career began as a documentary writer and director, though; initially he did this work for the Netherlands Naval Force. Soon, he started making films for other media like television.

    Apart from films, Verhoeven has directed television series for which he received much appreciation from all quarters. His best works include Diary of a Hooker and Turkish Delight, both of which were critically acclaimed movies and brought Verhoeven to  the limelight. He is a poignant story writer who has directed many famous and hugely successful Hollywood movies like The Hollow man, RoboCop and Total Recall, all of which were biggest grossing movies in their time.

    He is also the man who made Sharon Stone a cult figure when he directed her in the infamous and sexually overt movie Basic Instinct.  Paul VCerhoeven often portrayed sex in its most graphic form and this attracted criticism from few.
