Spetters is Dutch vernacular for "grease spatterings." The title is an allusion to the oily renderings left behind by the motorcycles commandeered by the film's central characters. Spetters further elaborates on the themes of sexual obsession previously probed in director Paul Verhoeven's Turkish Delight. Verhoeven is artistically graphic in juxtaposing cycle love with the carnal interrelations of a group of gay and straight teenagers. Rutger Hauer is terrific in the small role of a racing champion, while Renee Soutendjik is even better as a promiscuous waitress. Hal Erickson (allmovie.com)
