Paul Veroheven has been one of my favourite directors for a long time. Full disclosure : I have a bit of an obsession with Basic Instinct and when I was 18 I stole a dvd of The Fourth Man (ok... I actually rented it and never returned it). From the moment I first saw the trailer for Elle, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, I was extremely excited for it. Although this film will definitely not be everyone's cup of team (my date hated it!), I love that it is way outside the box... and so blatantly inappropriate. I would love to make dark smouldering films the way Veroheven makes them, and in his late 70's. not less Cool dude much? Life goals I tell you.
