Someone who missed the point of the film, decides to make a documentary about it.
15 July 2020 | by danielaudrasilvaSee all my reviews

Remember Claire from Six Feet Under? She goes to Art School and she befriends teenagers who are always high and will bring politics into every single thing for no reason. Now imagine those art school teenagers making a documentary about Showgirls and distorting every single thing in the movie to fit their narrative, that's You Don't Nomi. Everything you don't want in a Showgirls doc is here. Personal stories of random people I couldn't care less about and political commentary all over the place. What could have been an interesting dissection of the film and how it impacted Pop Culture, became a bad drinking game and if you take a shot everytime someone says "straight white male" you'll be drunk in no time. Ironically enough, this mess, completely misses the point about black characters, reducing Molly to a sidekick who only exists to serve Nomi, while in truth, Molly has the best and most interesting and sinister storyline in the film. Anyway, don't bother with this, get your friends together, watch the movie and discuss it among yourselves, you'll have a much better time.
