You Don't Nomi
Fri Sep 27: 7.30pm

Festival - Local Sightings Film Festival 2019: Feature Films

Northwest Forum presents Local Sightings: After Dark, with three late-night programs throughout the festival!
You Don't Nomi

** Introduction by Matt Baume, local writer, creator, and You Dont Nomi interview subject, who discusses the connection between Showgirls and the queer experience! **

(Jeffrey McHale, 2019, US, 92 min)

Paul Verhoevens Showgirls (1995) was met by critics and audiences with near universal derision. You Dont Nomi traces the films redemptive journey from notorious flop to cult classic, and maybe even masterpiece?

Nomi leaves it up to audiences to decide if Showgirls is trash, a masterpiece, or a masterpiece of trash, but one thing is certain: no matter how good or how bad one considers the films objective quality, one can enjoy Showgirls all the same.  Pat Mullen, POV Magazine

While far from a straightforward documentary about a widely marginalized film, You Dont Nomi reminds us that its okay to like things with rough edges, that streamlined perfection is overrated   Chuck Foster, Film Threat

This is the most thoughtful deconstruction of a film imaginable, as well as an ideal festival choice for those who used to buy DVDs just for the commentaries.  Kent Turner, Film-Forward.com
