Co-presented by MiDNiTES FOR MANiACS and Spoke Art

Spoke Art Museum and MiDNiTES FOR MANiACS are proud to co-present a 3-Day, 7-Film Retrospective of the work of Dutch filmmaker Paul Verhoeven. Like Fritz Lang in the 1940s & 1950s, upon arriving in Hollywood, Veroheven’s complex, subversive and visionary genre films have polarized American audiences for 30 years now. Spoke Art will be presenting brand new limited edition screen prints for TOTAL RECALL, ROBOCOP & STARSHiP TROOPERS available for purchase exclusively for attendees.

Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct

Paul Verhoeven’s fourth American film was an erotic, exploitative explosion upon its release 25 years ago. Causing controversy on both sides of the spectrum, this Hitchcockian thriller made Sharon Stone one of the defining sex symbols of the 1990s. Michael Douglas & Jeanne Tripplehorn heat things up as this sensational Mystery/Suspense flick reinvented the tired genre in one fell swoop. 35mm print. Rated R. 128 minutes.
