Critics reviews

The earlier massacre on the boat at the film’s start shows Verhoeven’s more serious side, where he takes his usual uncompromising approach to showing violence. While gore is commonplace in many contemporary action films, Verhoeven depicts violence as sudden, random and indiscriminate, casual but causal, making it all the more shocking.

Part of what I admire about Black Book is how it offers a kind of bracing rebuke toSchindler’s List, providing a much darker vision that refuses to let its audience off the hook so easily, though ostensibly it’s more fictional. Verhoeven messes with our heads by exploring moral complexities that Spielberg would be happier to sweep under the rug.
