Catching up with my latest efforts: Books on Parasite and Dune, new virtual cinema, and … Showgirls!

I haven’t been quite as busy with film writing in recent months as I was during the winter, but I’ve done enough to warrant a roundup.

First is SHOWGIRLS, of course — well, a documentary about SHOWGIRLS, that is. YOU DON’T NOMI is a new film about the curious afterlife of Paul Verhoeven’s much-maligned T&A extravaganza, and it’s a blast. It’s now available as a North Park Theatre virtual cinema selection — check out my review for The Film Stage at https://thefilmstage.com/you-dont-nomi-review-the-life-dea…/.

Also new for The Film Stage is my latest roundup of books about cinema, including explorations of PARASITE, David Lynch’s DUNE, the great PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE, and more: https://thefilmstage.com/you-dont-nomi-review-the-life-dea…/.

I’ve also written a few recent virtual cinema roundups for Buffalo News Gusto, featuring films available through Dipson TheatresNorth Park Theatre, and The Screening Room Cinema & Arts Cafe.

First is a look at MR. JONES, JUDY AND PUNCH, THE FEAST OF THE EPIPHANY, and A WHITE, WHITE DAY: https://buffalonews.com/entertainment/recommended-virtual-cinema-soviet-history-infidelity-marionettes-and-murder/article_4d830066-050f-565c-9801-9877bf1ba1a1.html.

Next is my analysis of TOMMASO, MILITARY WIVES, SHIRLEY, and SPACESHIP EARTH: https://buffalonews.com/…/new-virtual-cinema-military-wive…/.

And before that I covered DRIVEWAYS, CORPUS CHRISTI, SORRY WE MISSED YOU, ZOMBI CHILD, and DEERSKIN: https://buffalonews.com/…/virtual-cinema-5-picks-include-d…/.
