4.0 out of 5 stars Cinematic moments and creative dreams 17 May 2007
By Ms. C. J. Mcelwee VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As someone who has followed Rutger Hauer's career for almost 30 years I was delighted to find he has made the time to write an autobiography (with the assistance of a co-writer). Written in a very conversational way, and not having his quirky use of language totally expunged, this is a lovely book for getting to know a little about a creative soul. I did feel that much was left out that might interest, and that he may have been encouraged to focus less on his Dutch and European work because it may be of less interest to the American market, however on the whole, it was an entertaining introduction to a man who's cinematic characters have run the gamut of genres and emotions. A book about someone with a lot of talent and a big heart - there is something here also about his STARFISH FOUNDATION which provides some grass-roots help for children and women with AIDS/HIV especially in developing countries.

He's not done yet, there are many creative challenges ahead, and hopefully this book may encourage budding new directors to invite him to participate in projects new, but directing is very much on his horizon.

Rutger's website is also very well worth a visit [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read 9 Jun 2007
Format:Hardcover
As a fan of Rutger, I was somewhat nervous about reading this - what if there was something that spoiled my image of him? Well, his image remains secure. The book is easy to read and entertaining, with no unpleasant surprises. Rutger has lived an eventful life, and his story comes across as genuine. It does leave some questions unanswered, and there is no filmography, however, there are several photos, including a couple from his childhood.

Also: for more info on Rutger, the website Caroline lists is an excellent source with a complete filmography, lots of pictures, and a guestbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Those Moments Will Not Be Lost 10 Aug 2007
Format:Hardcover
This is a wonderful and surprising book. I am in awe of the movie Blade Runner. I grew up with the L.A. skyline at my doorstep and I feel a dark connection to the film, which I saw in a huge, pre-multiplex theater with my father all those years ago. I was delighted to read about Mr. Hauer's experiences, and to learn that his contribution to Blade Runner is huge. In fact, this inside look at the actor's work and career left me feeling quite grounded. Rutger Hauer's passion and intelligence resonates clearly and I thank him for sharing his life. Please do note that he also writes at length of his involvement with the AIDS/HIV crisis in the world and the Starfish Association that he founded to try to make a difference. I recommend this to all!!

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"!
