Ahead of next month's release of Benedetta, we take a deep dive into Paul Verhoeven's 1997 movie Starship Troopers. Misinterpreted on release and now widely appreciated at satire, we discuss whether it is merely a mirthful description of fascism or if it rises to the level of a critique. We compiled some reading on the movie and its source material, which we've made available here.
