It Doesn't Suck!

The local film-critic Adam Nayman will be having a launch for his new monograph It Doesn't Suck on Paul Verhoeven's Showgirls on Friday, March 14th at 9PM at the TIFF Bell Lightbox before he introduces the film. It Doesn't Suck is one of the best recent film books for the spirit of Nayman's endeavor to redeem Showgirls from its disreputable reputation through the erudition of his research and the passion and thoughtfulness of his analysis. To give one example Nayman cites that the French director Mia Hansen-Løve is a big fan of the film and that the discussion of the film will play a key role in her upcoming film Eden (I, II). There are many other great revelations regarding Showgirls to be had. A must read!
