Dutch Delerium Tremens......,
This review is from: The Fourth Man [DVD] (DVD)
Jeron Krabbe is without one of the most underatted actors ever. Want proof? 'The Fourth Man'. I would also say that Paul Verhoeven is also underated to, sadly because most people will only have seen his Hollywood films. But twenty years ago he made his last Dutch language film and (in my opinion) his best film. The Fourth Man could be seen as a blueprint for Basic Instinct in some ways but this is far, far better in all ways.
Jeron Krabbe plays an alchoholic, homosexual writer giving a talk for a book society when he becomes entagled in the web of Christine (the societies treasurer) which brings about some bizarre violent a sexual religious visions, the mystery of Christine's three dead husbands and his lusting for her good-looking but sexually inadequate boyfriend. Shocking, hilarious. and not a dull moment in entire 99mins. Black comedy as it's best, and a brilliant performances abound. A must see!
