. Gina Gershon

Showgirls (1995)

Title: Showgirls
Released: 1995
Genre: Drama
Runtime: 128 min
Country: USA / France
Language: English

Tagline: Beyond your wildest dreams. Beyond your wildest fantasies.

Plot Summary: Nomi Malone sets out for Las Vegas to become a showgirl. After working as a stripper, she gets her big break at a chorus line audition for the Stardust Casino production, 'Goddess.' She soon finds out that 'showbiz' is a rough-and-tumble world--is she tough enough to claw her way to the top? And if so, is it really worth it?

Comments: Elizabeth Berkley, the star of the movie who plays Nomi, puts in a stunning, Oscar-winning performance. Both men and women will find themselves captivated by Berkley's beauty. Berkley simply oozes youthfulness, energy, sexuality and positivity - which is simply addictive to watch; and her adolescent & naïve juvenile manner, voice, and sense of humour is utterly adorable and teasing. Berkley, along with her fellow cast, deliver such heart-felt, enthusiastic performances, that they manage to turn Verhoeven's & Eszterhas' sloppiness into one of the most surprisingly brilliant movies of all time...

This World, Then the Fireworks (1997)

Title: This World, Then the Fireworks
Released: 1997
Genre: Crime / Drama
Runtime: 100 min
Country: USA
Language: English

Tagline: Meet Marty and Carol. Two people who are very good at being bad.

Plot Summary: Marty Lakewood is a reporter forced to leave Chicago and his family because he had uncovered too much police corruption. He returns to his small home town on the California coast to his ailing mother and prostitute sister, with whom he had an incestuous affair. Being short of money, he seduces a woman cop in order to sell her house.

Comments: I consider this film one of my top 10, mostly because the characterization of Billy Zane's character may be the best in any movie ever. This movies has almost everything you want: Original Awesome Characterization (especially with Zane's Character) Sufficiently well written and acted. Maybe this movie isn't what the mainstream wants, but it is still an excellent flick.


Scene Description: Gina Gershon laying on her side and then rolling over with her breast sticking out of her dress while she talks to a guy before he adjusts her dress to cover her up.

Personal quotes

"As an actress, I have one rule for myself: F--k the rules."

"Jennifer's nice. She had lipstick that wasn't too messy."

"I end up getting the girl at the end. I've never gotten the girl before. It's kinda nice."

"Dont put mascara on while driving. Especially while going around a blind curve."

"...on the filming of love scenes in Bound "I felt like I was having sex with about 20 people."

"I have a very sensitive stomach. I eat a lot of tums!"

"After the first time I see myself in any movie I've just done, I usually think about other careers I could pursue."

"With these large dark eyebrows I've got, people are always going to think I'm a bitch. That's how it goes."

"About the nudity in Showgirls "I didn't expect to be dancing in a muumuu, but the first time I watched the film, I said 'Oh My God! I don't have any clothes on!' It's like my evil shadow stepped out and wreaked havoc all over the screen!"

"I could be Meryl Streep of the Mediterranean world!"

"When I moved to New York, I re-invented myself from a Valley surfer chick to an East Coast snob. My accent and my whole look changed. Now I'd rather stay in and read books than go out and sun myself."
