  • It's a keen essay about the deeper meanings of cinema, in the form of a fun, "Hey, remember the '90s?" nostalgia-piece.

  • More than forcing Showgirls into a good/bad binary, McHale uses the film as a case study in critical perspective, a Rosetta Stone on cultural contrarianism.

    June 22, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Searching for hidden depths in Showgirls might feel like going deep sea fishing in a puddle, but this fun, likeable doc makes a decent case for a reappraisal.

    June 12, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • I think the point is that Elizabeth Berkley's performance, however bizarre, has a fierce, focused intensity like the rest of the film, which accumulates in your senses.

    June 11, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The lesson is obvious. Never to listen to critics.

    June 10, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It may not be as bizarrely entertaining as the film it obsesses over, but You Don't Nomi is a captivating document of how a piece of art-especially one this deeply, powerfully weird-can take on a life wholly beyond its original intentions.
