Paul Verhoeven United States, 2000

T. J. Mesen's rating of the film Hollow Man

After a rewatch I feel this is Verhoeven's most underrated film (it calls for an appreciation à la Showgirls). This is B styled sci-fi with Verhoeven's characteristic violence and social commentary. An exploration of the impact of technology on the individual, voyeurism and human identity. As Sebastian loses his physical presence he is also detached from any kind of social obligations, and the horror is unleashed.
