ELLE | FILM PREVIEW

ELLE | FILM PREVIEW

**** Dir: Paul Verhoeven (18, 130 mins) Provocative and disturbing, the director of tabloid baiting hits Basic Instinct and Showgirls, giddying violent adventures Starship Troopers and Total Recall returns with his most uncomfortable film to date.

MARCH SINGLES | MUSIC REVIEW
