Any questions? They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but for the cast and crew of one particular film, what happened in Vegas changed the course of the careers of those attached…as well as cinema itself…forever. Billed as a searing and sexual look into the world of the erotic dancers of Las Vegas, Showgirls was touted as a benchmark in a new era of adult entertainment, and as a flagship for the NC rating.
Showgirls movie review & film summary () | Roger Ebert
A sleazefest like "Showgirls" promises the inside dope on Las Vegas, stripping, hooking and all that stuff. What "Showgirls" delivers, however, seems basically to be Joe Eszterhas' masturbatory fantasies. The screenplay is the fevered product of a very limited imagination, brought to a high gloss in a slick, expensive soap opera. It contains no true eroticism, however, and that's why I think it reflects a grounding in sexual fantasy: Eroticism requires a mental connection between two people, while masturbation requires only the other person's image. What seems to turn Eszterhas on are images of women with knives a switchblade appears in the first 60 seconds , lesbianism, sex for cash and violence.
And oh, what a magical film it is. I'd heard all the jokes and seen the infamous poster , the one where Berkley looks like a curvy, one-legged french fry of a woman — but I had never seen the movie itself. So I decided to finally watch it, in honor of this special occasion.
Elizabeth Berkley in 'Showgirls. After getting his start in his native Holland with wild, sexually explicit dramas like Spetters and Turkish Delight a Oscar nominee for Best Foreign-Language Film , director Paul Verhoeven came to Hollywood in the Eighties and rebranded himself as a can-do-anything sci-fi filmmaker with a slightly satircal bent. If you needed to make a film about a cyborg cop Robocop or send Arnold Schwarzenegger to Mars Total Recall , he was your man.
