My admiration for Paul Verhoeven is difficult to explain to most rational people.  I'll put it like this...Verhoeven doesn't apologize for making the films that he wants to make.  That is to say, full of violence and sex.  He left his mark on Hollywood throughout the late 80's/90's with Robocop, Total Recall, Basic Instinct and Starship Troopers.
