Showgirls

“…The film’s protagonist is Nomi, a fiercely independent…doll-like creature who arrives in Las Vegas lost, with no family, no friends and a CV consisting exclusively of straight-talking and lap dancing. Soon, her ability to arouse piques the attention of Cristal Connors, performed by the wickedly absurd Gina Gershon….It is a mad kaleidoscope of exposed breasts, lip liner, seizure-like orgasms, more lip liner, and muscular men in gold lamé thongs….” (Harriet Gibsone, The Guardian)
