    AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) — Fons Rademakers, whose 1986 movie “De Aanslag” (“The Assault”) won an Academy Award as best foreign language film, died Thursday of emphysema at age 86, his son said.
    The son, also named Fons, confirmed to The Associated Press his father died in the early morning after doctors turned off life support machines at the filmmaker’s request.
    Rademakers was known for his theatrical narrative style, and was one of a small number of filmmakers in the Netherlands — including “Basic Instinct” director Paul Verhoeven — to produce a large number of full-budget feature films over a long career.
