When SHOWGIRLS was released in 1995, Paul Verhoeven’s salacious NC-17 look at Vegas dancers was met by critics and audiences alike with near universal derision. But in the intervening decades, the film has inspired an ever-growing fan community and impassioned debate over its quality, artistic intent, and messages about sex and gender. Guided by a chorus of film critics, scholars, and fervent devotees, YOU DON’T NOMI explores the legacy and broader implications of SHOWGIRLS, while diving into its cultural inspirations and place in Verhoeven’s filmography.
