  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Fourth Man

    Intéressant et provocateur, un film riche et troublant qui révèle un réalisateur... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film The Fourth Man

    Rewatch. The closest Verhoeven came to a straightforward fantastique/horror film.

  3. merzka's rating of the film The Fourth Man

    Cheap, absurd, scatological thrills.

  4. redux's rating of the film The Fourth Man

    This is how it must feel to be one of those living monkeys with their skull opened and brains spooned out. My last Verhoeven.

  5. jenstor's rating of the film The Fourth Man

  6. Rocco's rating of the film The Fourth Man

    A tad too ambiguous for my taste, but definitely one of Verhoeven's finest creations. Extremely sexy and visually sumptuous.

  7. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film The Fourth Man

  8. Balthaz21's rating of the film The Fourth Man

  9. le Gars's rating of the film The Fourth Man

    The Fourth Man or the Basic Instinct prequel.

  10. Myriam Raja's rating of the film The Fourth Man

    Rich colours, weird acting and sumptuous frames filled with plenty of gore, creepy imagery, some sex and beautiful cinematography - a great and worthwhile watch. Yes, the plot seems a little odd and I wasn't particularly satisfied with the ending, but there's enough to make you want to keep watching.

  11. Rui Oliveira's rating of the film The Fourth Man

    I quite liked this film. One of Verhoeven's earlier films, before he went to Hollywood. It has so many great ideas, especially for the time. A psychological thriller, with clear influences from Hitchcock and De Palma, but with a strong surreal Lynchian atmosphere. It's a bit over the top at times, but the mix of eroticism, suspense and blood is there, and it would become one of Verhoevens' trademarks.

  13. m.jempson@btinternet.com's rating of the film The Fourth Man

    Great opening credit sequence. The rest is melodrama - surprisingly soulless for all its rich colours and religious symbolism - but quite fun all the same, for a wet afternoon.

  14. Leigh Collins's rating of the film The Fourth Man

    Really enjoyed this one. Reminiscent in places of Hitchcock, Don't Look Now and The Omen, it somehow manages to be tongue-in-cheek and over-the-top, yet at the same time being serious, unpredictable and compelling. It's filmed beautifully too. And I'm still not sure if Soutendijk is a bad actress or a good actress mastering a blank, inscrutable character. Can't recall another film like it.

  15. raggiodisole's rating of the film The Fourth Man

    style over substance in der dutch wegen. alright really.

  16. Ian Pike's rating of the film The Fourth Man

    Interesting story, but two-dimesional characters, and not particularly well acted.

  17. miles's rating of the film The Fourth Man

    i like the dutch rhythm.

  18. Mal Smith's rating of the film The Fourth Man

    An interesting movie, with something unexpected happening every few minutes. Reminds me of Hitchcock at his darkest and wryest, especially when a dead seagull almost falls on the hero's head. Could have benefited from being a bit tighter and even more shocking, like Alfred at his best. But a great early attempt by the young Dutch master.

  19. tintinmugshot's rating of the film The Fourth Man

    Very well filmed, sensuous feeling of a B movie, in a George Romero and Brian de Palma way.

  20. babycakesromero's rating of the film The Fourth Man

  21. SiIencio's rating of the film The Fourth Man

    There is a Lynchean feel to this kinky hypnotic drama despite it precedes Lynch's most significant surreal body of work. It is ambitious in its conception, mixing different subversive elements as a recipe for something special with the shock factor in mind. However ultimately the plot turns out to be pretty conventional, unimaginative, and it all falls flat in the end. Verhoeven still learning the trade.

  22. DanB3000's rating of the film The Fourth Man

    I can see what Verhoeven was trying to achieve here, but there are a few too many ideas he tries to put together, and he gets tangled up in them. Comes across as an amateur's attempt at Hitchcock. 2.5

  23. Bob's rating of the film The Fourth Man

  24. Mister Monkeyman's rating of the film The Fourth Man

    Clever black comedy with a lot of quirky visual touches and imaginative story telling.
