(1995) "Showgirls" was advertised as a racy erotic thriller, proudly wearing its "NC-17" rating on its bedazzled sleeve. But instead of "Basic Instinct
" -- director Paul Verhoeven and screenwriter Joe Eszterhas's previous collaboration -- audiences got something much weirder and sleazier. What do you make of a scene where the two main characters bond over their shared childhood love of dog food? Or that bizarre swimming pool love scene with Kyle MacLachlan? "Showgirls" is filled unhinged moments like these. And they didn't happen on accident. Though star Elizabeth Berkeley delivers a go-for-broke, completely exposed --- in all senses of the term -- performance, you can almost hear Paul Verhoeven snickering in the background.
