Going from the diamond-encrusted mountaintops of a Hollywood summer blockbuster to the deepest cubic zirconium mineshafts of convention-floor fan fodder, writer/director/producer/editor/star Reni Riffel’s Showgirls 2: Penny’s From Heaven contains one of the most precipitous budgetary climate shifts in franchise history. If that wasn’t enough to make your veins collapse like you’ve got the bends, it’s one of the most exhaustively weird film experiences of last year. Kicking off nowhere near where the original story left off, it’s a movie that starts over a decade later, stars a tertiary yet fan-adored character that only hardcore Showgirls-heads would be familiar with (kind of like making Admiral Ackbar: The Movie), and tonally drifts so far that even its homage-like qualities begin focusing on a completely different movie: Mulholland Drive (in which Riffel also had a co-starring part.) Did we mention this Z-budget opus is two and half hours? Seriously, it is. No, really. That might seem excessive, but remember, it’s only ten minutes longer than Showgirls, and three minutes shorter than Mulholland Drive! We just wanna make sure you’ve been briefed. Director/star Rena Riffel will be at the Cinefamily in person for a Q&A after the film!
Dir. Rena Riffel, 2011, HD presentation, 135 min.

Direct to DVD and on TV 12 months after that.

File with Steven Seagal's latest yarn.

I'm a big Seagal fan, but i'm not so sure about this film, in general it's not a very good idea for DTV films to be 2 hours or longer, it just dosen't work.

The most experienced student in any of my film direction/production classes was a guy who did some work on Showgirls. (I'm not sure what he did exactly). Needless to say, he was the celebrity in our ranks. He had a cowboy hat and spoke with great confidence. Nice fellow. I didn't have the presence of mind to ask if he'd personally seen any famous jubblies, but I'm pretty interested now that I think about it.

My favorite acting teacher was in a few things, mainly a bit part in Big. I think she also had a background part that was cut from a Woody Allen movie. She was tough, but sweet.

I had an editing teacher whose claim to fame was working on local Sunday worship broadcasts. She was fucking insufferable.
