Reviled upon its release but now reclaimed as a camp, cult classic - one can only submit to the trash-tastic delights of Paul Verhoeven's erotic disasterpiece.

Melodrama 1995 126 mins

Director: Paul Verhoeven



With lifelong dreams of becoming the World’s greatest topless dancer, tempestuous Nomi Malone (Elizabeth Berkley) arrives in Las Vegas with nothing but a suitcase and a few dollars to her name. Landing a job at a seedy strip bar, Nomi has her sights set on the Stardust Hotel where erotic icon Cristal (Gina Gershon) rules the roost. And she’ll stop at nothing to get there.

Paul Verhoeven's raucous mix of over acting, catfights and doggy chow was infamously reviled upon its release, but in recent years has been reclaimed as a camp, cult classic along the lines of Mommie Dearest; an enduring, trash-tastic disasterpiece.
