Cult Film Club: Showgirls (18)

18

Paul Verhoeven’s 1995 film was derided on original release and went on to win 7 Razzies (with Verhoeven becoming the first person in history to turn up in person to collect his dubious ‘prize’) but has undergone reevaluation in recent years and risen up as a cult classic, with many suggesting the film’s satirical content went over the heads of 90s critics.

Las Vegas… Running from a troubled past and possessed of a raw and riveting dancing talent, Nomi Malone (Elizabeth Berkeley) is soon introduced to the arena of the sensual, pulsating stage shows on the legendary Strip and the powerful men and women who run them. One of those drawn to Nomi’s beauty and talent is Zack (Kyle McLachlan), the ambitious entertainment director at the Stardust. Another is Cristal (Gina Gershon), the glamorous, coke-snorting star of the stage show “Goddess,” who may make her…or break her. As the complex bonds of passion, jealousy and love form between them, Nomi is drawn deeper into the world she so desperately desires and the allure of the spotlight she craves. It’s a world of passion, power and personal moral choices where everything–and everyone–has a price.
