Paul Verhoeven's Showgirls (1995) was met by critics and audiences with near universal derision. You Don't Nomi traces the film's redemptive journey from notorious flop to cult classic, and maybe even masterpiece.

The plot consists of different course of events, feelings and colorful pictures in a staggering tale of war, rivalry, betrayal and forbidden love. A story that lies in events recounted by descendants of Ninni and John's reality.
Swedish "public service"-TV keeps feeding us with mostly, pure junk, of which this series is another fine example. People that probably were teenagers a long time ago try to make their impression of what is like to be one today, and miss the mark completely. The show feels unrealistic, as a youngster I do not recognize myself at all here. To add to the strived after-realism, it is filmed in very grainy digital video and the lightning is virtually non-existant. Which I find only irritating, when its probably intended to be "cool".
This show got very bad ratings and missed its intended audience completely. In fact, a majority of the people who actually watched it were senior citizens. But since public service is financed by license money that you have to pay if you own a TV, and not what sells, someone came up with the brilliant idea to make a follow-up to the series: Spung 2.0. Wonderful. Stay away from this one. 1/10.
