First Trailer for 'You Don't Nomi' Doc About 'Showgirls' Cult Following
"Sexuality is part of our life, and we should not be afraid of it." RLJE Films has unveiled an official trailer for an indie documentary titled You Don't Nomi, a cine-essay doc about the film Showgirls. When Paul Verhoeven's follow-up to Basic Instinct, the strip club drama Showgirls opened in 1995, it bombed big time and ended the Hollywood career of quite a few people. You Don't Nomi traces the film's redemptive journey from notorious flop to cult classic, and maybe even masterpiece. This initially premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year, and will be available to watch on VOD this summer. Showgirls has become somewhat of a cult classic over the years, but not everyone loves it, and there's still plenty of divisive takes on it. Have fun.
Here's the official trailer (+ two posters) for Jeffrey McHale's doc You Don't Nomi, direct from YouTube:
