Josh G (mx) wrote: You might say that Spetters is typical Verhoeven: full of ambiguous morality, sex, and violence (although the few "fight" scenes are remarkable for how badly choreographed they are). Spetters is about a group of guys in Holland who like two things: racing dirtbikes and the new french fry vendor-girl in town, Fientje. The movie doesn't waste a lot of time trying to get the viewer to like the main characters though, as they assault a gay man early on in the film and then measure each others'.. ahem.. manhood in order to determine who should get the opportunity to make sweet, beautiful love with Fientje. Ah, youth! To be honest, the story is kind of aimless from there. Fientje goes through the boys one at a time, leaving a path of destruction in her wake. But it's not set up as though she is some kind of angel of death -- instead, it's almost like a darkly comic version of one of those dating game shows. Okay, Guy #1 isn't going to work out because he's been paralyzed from the waist down, so let's see how your date with Guy #2 went! There are plenty of movies out there about bad people who live bad lives. Usually these films don't leave much to be thankful for once the film is over. Closer and Very Bad Things are two examples that come to my mind immediately. Maybe it's just that I'm a Verhoeven apologist, but it seems to me that Spetters avoids that trap by being infused with this really kind of morbidly dark humor. Rather than just throwing unlikeable characters at the viewer and asking us to sit through a tale about their lives, Spetters makes it clear from early on in the film that the protagonists are actually the antagonists, so the pleasure of the film is in seeing how they get their comeuppance. I don't know how shocking a film it is, really. Also, Verhoeven's stylistic flourishes aren't as evident in these earlier films, unfortunately -- there aren't really many sweeping and intricate camera movements, no upside-down shots turning right-side up. It's definitely Verhoeven, though, and not bad even if it's not as quick to draw you in as Robocop was. P.S. I love the scene where the family gets the oranges. In movies, oranges are portents of doom, so this laughing family happily peeling oranges in their car made me both laugh and tense up in anticipation of some impending catastrophe. That was probably the part of the movie where it became clear, to me, what Spetters was all about.
