Playing like a Roger Corman biker exploitation film by way of Saturday Night FeverSpetters (or Spark), is an explicit, sexually charged psychodrama that charts the coming-of-age of three blue-collar, motor-cross-obsessed young men.

Hopped up on testosterone, the boys live to race their dirt bikes and dream of one day becoming as famous as the world champion, Gerrit Witkamp (Rutger Hauer)—but fate has other things in store when a woman with an Olivia Newton-John fixation erupts onto the scene.

Homosexuality, religion, suicide, misogyny, and macho posturing are on full display – along with Verhoeven’s unflinching frankness and razor-sharp satiric edge. A somewhat male-drive precursor to Showgirls, fifteen years prior, Spetters caused so much controversy and outrage at the time, Verhoeven soon packed up his realism and headed for Hollywood.

In Dutch with English subtitles.
