Back on Showgirls, Paul Verhoeven's most sulphurous and misunderstood film, 25 years after its commercial failure.

Massacred by the critics and shunned by the public when it was released in 1995, Showgirls has become over the years a cult film, especially among gays. Director Paul Verhoeven, lead actress Elizabeth Berkley, movie critics and fans are trying to explain why this cursed work deserves to be re-evaluated. Behind the delicious "bad taste", the assumed vulgarity and the sexual provocation, hides a biting and jubilant criticism of the United States and the entertainment industry. An exciting documentary!
