Movie – Black Book: B-

Paul Verhoeven, the man who directed RoboCop, Total Recall, and Starship Troopers, decided he needed to make a film about a Jewish woman surviving WWII in his native Holland. It’s filled with all the nudity, violence, and social commentary I’ve come to associate with him, but also does a decent job showing the horrors of The War from a Dutch perspective. Unfortunately there wasn’t anything incredibly new or notable. At one point the lead character screams, “When will it end?” after yet another horrible hardship. I echoed her sentiments, with twist after twist leaving me apathetic about closure and just hoping for a conclusion.
