On Film

I am watching the popular movie "Showgirls" on basic cable as I type this. They have removed all the nude scenes, which allows me to focus on the story a bit more but makes it generally not nearly as good as the original. Two businessmen just invited Elizabethe Berkeley out on the town to "sing some songs." You can tell by the looks on their faces that what they really mean is that they want to "have sex with her." Elizabeth Berkeley is not "having it." She is not like the other girls. Dammit.

Now there is a big dance number happening and one of the dancers has just dropped marbles all over the stage. It is my sense that it was intentional. I wonder what will happen next.

It is not easy being a showgirl.
