Showgirls

Showgirls ★★★★★

Over 25 years after its initial release, Paul Verhoven’s erotic drama Showgirls (1995) holds up as the explosive, subversive chef-d'oeuvre that made you first long for the supple caress of another woman.

A cult classic infamous for gratuitous nudity and a threadbare plot, Showgirls is the story of Nomi Malone (Elizabeth Berkley), a mysterious drifter striving for stardom and survival in glitzy Las Vegas. Nomi dances her way past friends and foes alike, clashing with her sexy rival Crystal Connors (Gina Gershon), a successful showgirl with the sharpened elbows to prove it. From its first splash on the big screen to the fateful day when – unbeknownst to your sleeping parents – you stayed up late to watch it on Cinemax, this film has both delighted and surprised audiences by awakening the uncontrollable sapphic thirst previously dormant within them.
