Starship Troopers

Thursday, October 25

Film Suburbs & Beyond

In a futuristic society where rights are earned through military service, a group of friends join Earth's intergalactic war against a race of insectoid aliens. Arch-satirist Paul Verhoeven uses the tropes of the action blockbuster to subversive ends, drawing audiences into a rollicking thrill-ride whose gung-ho militarism gradually reveals shades of Riefenstahl and Nuremberg.

(R) USA – 2 hr 9 min
