Showgirls (1995)

June 27th, 2022

Showgirls is a 1995 erotic dram film directed by Paul Verhoeven and written by Joe Eszterhas, and stars Elizabeth Berkley, Kyle McLachlan, Gina Gershon and Gina Ravera. The film centers on a “street-smart” drifter who ventures to Las Vegas and climbs the seedy hierarchy from stripper to showgirl. The film was the second collaboration between Verhoeven and Eszterhas, after their success with Basic Instinct.

Eyes Wide Shut (1999)

May 9th, 2022

Grab your black robes and venetian masks, cause it's time for us to deep dive into Stanley Kubrick's final film, Eyes Wide Shut. Filled with horror adjacent erotic intrigue, Tom Cruise entering and leaving rooms, Nicole Kidman monologuing, and lots and lots of bush, this film is just begging to be undressed and examined for the little flirt that it is.

Death Becomes Her (1992)

April 11th, 2022

We're kicking off our annual comedy month with Death Becomes Her - a 1992 American satirical black comedy horror fantasy film directed and produced by Robert Zemeckis. The score for the film was composed by Alan Silvestri, and stars Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn as rivals who fight for the affections of the same man and drink a magic potion that promises eternal youth but causes unpleasant side effects.  The film was a pioneer in the use of computer-generated effects and was widely regarded as some of the best work up to that point and beyond.
