If you are reading this review, then chances are you are also a fan of Rutger Hauer. He has appeared in some of the seminal roles of film history...I don't need to mention the obvious ones i.e Roy Batty. There was Soldier Martin in Flesh & Blood and of course the role that broke the mould in Turkish Delight, a film which I thoroughly recommend. The hitcher was chilling. There were also the many many doozies - really bad films that Rutger somehow managed to find himself in. Lets face it he has done may of these, Omega Doom, Cold Blood to name but a few.
The book promises on the surface to reveal something of the man himself. I expected to hear his side of things, why for instance did he make some of these obviously poor choices. Here was an opportunity to open up to the reader. But alas it never quite breaks the surface. Autobiographies usually reveal something of the pscyche within. Rutger chooses not to expose this. When he mentions his parents and their departure when he was still a child, our appetite is whetted. We want to hear more...but then he moves on never quite settling on anything too long. Yes it was interesting to learn that he left with the merchant navy at such a young age (he was 15) but we are never allowed more than a furtive glance into the man's life.
Part of what attracts people to this man has been the mystery that surrounds him and his refusal to fit in with the Hollywood stereotype. This is why I would have liked to hear more from him on a personal level. His need for privacy is legendary and we can well understand this. But when one elects to write a biography, the reader expects a little more insight than has been generally available. This book could have been so much more.
We don't hear much about his wife nor why they decided not have any children. O.

I have been a fan of Rutger Hauer since I saw Blade Runner when it came out in 1982. His new autobiography ("All Those Moments") is a revealing portrait of the artist giving a candid look at his life and his approach to acting. The son of actors, he describes his early life growing up in Holland, his start as an actor in a small rural theater company and his start as a film actor.

He describes his major films: Blade Runner, Ladyhawke, Blind Fury, Soldier of Orange, the Hitcher and Nighthawks, and his breakthrough role in the Dutch television series Floris, in detail giving insight into how he approaches his character. He spends some time describing his craft and the difficulties of being away from home for long periods of time. Mr. Hauer has made his share of bad films but he has always struck me as such a consummate professional that his performance is always worth watching.

The book is written in a conversational style, as if Mr. Hauer was taking to you, which makes for fast reading. The book is illustrated with several black-and-white photographs of some family pictures but more of Mr. Hauer in his various roles. My only small complaint is that the book does not have a true ending. We leave off at Mr. Hauer's most recent projects - Batman Begins and The Poseidon Adventure - for a chapter on acting followed by a chapter on the Starfish Association and some entries from his diary. There is no looking ahead to what he thinks his life or career will bring. The Starfish Association is an AIDS support group to which the royalties of Mr. Hauer's book are being donated.

This is a very frank, entertaining and thought-provoking book. If you have seen any of Rutger Hauer's films his book is a must-read.

This is a true treat for Rutger Hauer fans. Very interesting reading. The stories behind such great films as Blade Runner, The Hitcher, Ladyhawke, Nighthawks, etc are fascinating. I highly recommend this book. As a plus, the profits from this book go towards Rutgers Starfish program to help HIV/AIDS patients. Keep up the good work.

I was surprised by Hauer's book. There was no Hollywood hoop di do or affectations. Just a honest tale of his life's adventures-very down to earth, and totally interesting.

Sometime around 2006 Rutger Hauer's car breaks down somewhere near Cape Town in South Africa. A tow truck operator is finally found after dusk has set in. The man arrives, takes a look at the actor and says "I can't believe I am meeting you here. Blade Runner is my favourite movie."

Rutger has had a long and winding career in the arts spanning from small-time stage and screen productions in his native Netherlands in the late 1960s onto more recent Hollywood flicks like Batman Begins Batman Begins (Full Screen Edition). Hauer has no lack of stories to retell, experiences to recount and memories to reminisce. Yet, it is Blade Runner Blade Runner (The Director's Cut) that to this day captures the most hearts and minds. Not only does Hauer allocate more space to the film he calls "The role of my life" than any other (although not a considerable feat given some of Hauer's other films), but also Blade Runner fans would enjoy learning the trivia and information shared by the book. There is information here on how his participation almost didn't happen, the lines he contributed and all that other stuff. In fact, this book's name, sub-title, title font and back-cover quotation are all Blade Runner references.

Hauer has a lot to say about other roles he has taken on, film industry experiences and also opens up emotionally a little. His encounter with Sly Stallone in Nighthawks Nighthawks is an interesting one, as is C.
