After reading about Starship Troopers and Robocop, I started thinking about a lesser known, but in many ways better film made by Verhoeven. It’s called the Fourth Man, and was was made in Denmark in 1983. Re-watch Basic Instinct as a double feature with this film and you’ll see right away that Instinct is a thematic remake of this earlier work. The movie is about a writer drawn into the occult web of murder and insanity.
Not sure where you can watch this online, Amazon maybe?
