If you're planning on coming to Jeffrey McHale's documentary You Don't Nomi (Screening at the Hollywood Avondale on July 19 as part of the NZIFF) then this is your must-attend refresher course.

If not - come anyway and relive the “masterpiece of sh*t” and no doubt you'll be booking your You Don't Nomi tickets on the way out..

Unbound by musty notions of “good taste,” Showgirls goes further than any other film of the 1990s in its orgiastic depiction of consumerism, crass spectacle, and the dark side of the American Dream.

Elizabeth Berkley (in a tour-de-force of hysterical excess) stars as Nomi, a tough-as-nails drifter with a go-it-alone attitude and a murky past, who arrives in Las Vegas and sets about trampling on everyone around her—including Gina Gershon’s evil-seductive nightclub diva—as she fights her way up from stripper in a sleazy club to star showgirl.

With its deliciously overripe dialogue and nigh-unhinged performances, Showgirls is both a delirious star-is-born satire and a terrifying vision of capitalism’s corruption of the soul.
