Hit Me With Your Best Shot: Showgirls
Even without looking back at Showgirls, as per Nathaniel's instructions for this new feature, I can tell you that this is my favorite shot. Whenever I hear about anyone sabotaging anyone in real life, I think about this image. Whenever I hear the phrase "lost her marbles," I think about this image. Whenever I almost slip on the sidewalk in the winter in Chicago, which happens a lot, I think about this image. It's not my favorite moment in Showgirls, which unquestionably involves the full-bodied heaving of ketchup onto a heap of French Fries and in answer to a completely innocent and rational question from a friendly stranger the explosively pouty line-reading, "Different! PLACES!!!"
But this is my favorite shot.
