This Dutch trailer for Paul Verhoeven‘s Black Book (Sony Classics) is interesting for the extreme widescreen framing. It looks like a 3 to 1 aspect ratio…odd. The film is supposed to be Verhoeven’s return to his Dutch roots, but it looks like it was shot with the same technical slickness that he applied to The Hollow Man. I have to give David Poland credit for making me laugh by calling it Showgirl’s List. He called it”a perverse delight…Verhoeven has a strong, kinky voice that is on full display here. Sex, Nazis, excrement, pubic hair bleaching, Lugers, explosions, Jews, redheads, singing, dancing…woo hoo!! This film may actually be Showgirls for the intelligentsia. Can’t wait to see it again.”
