    Black Book

    ★★★★½

    Being a huge fan of Mr. Verhoeven I can't believe I slept on this one for so long. I was gripped from start to finish.

    Lana Wachowski takes one of the boldest swings when it comes to restarting a franchise and she damn well succeeds.

    This is weaponized nostalgia and not what you are expecting AT ALL.
