I've appreciated Rutger Hauer ever since I saw him in "BladeRunner", back in 1982/83 (yes, I caught it only on it's VHS release), and was thrilled as I heard of this release, his autobiography "All Those Moments".
The book is a very nice starting point, if you want to learn more about the man behind those eyes. We learn of his childhood years and his family, about the years when he was doing theatre acting, and about the breakthrough in the Dutch TV-series "Floris" - and of other Dutch productions that followed, often with Paul Verhoeven behind the lens.
And, of course, the 'Roy Batty' part in "BladeRunner" is obviously still very close to his heart. The rest is past history, as they say? Not really, as Mr. Hauer also discusses his current charity project to battle AIDS/HIV, "The Rutger Hauer Starfish Foundation", and his newer movies as well. What also strikes me, after having read the book, is that Mr. Hauer seems to have a very big heart, an ever burning passion for his craft, and a whole lot of integrity!
So, do buy the book - especially as all the money the book sales generate, goes directly to "The RH Starfish Foundation"!
