Everyone loves a movie! So, we've put together details of movies with Exotic Dancers/Strip Clubs depicted in them, for you to peruse. Enjoy...

The End of Sex

Premiered on 10th September 2022, at the Toronto International Film Festival, this comedic look at a married couple's sex life proves to provide "laugh-out-loud" moments.

This Canadian film stars Jonas Chernick (who also wrote the movie) as Josh, and Emily Hampshire as his wife Emma. Directed by Sean Garrity, it follows this couple's sexual adventures when, realizing sex has become routine, they decide to make full use of a week whilst their children are away at camp. The film highlights the difference between love and lust and the importance they may hold in any relationship.

X

"X" is a slasher horror movie which, while paying homage to this genre, manages to provide something different and surprising. It's written, produced, directed, and edited by Ti West, and manages to deliver a continuing level of growth & expertise by him, ever since his 2009 breakthrough "The House of the Devil". The movie premiered at the "South by Southwest" festival on 13th March 2022, to good critical acclaim, and was released to USA movie theatres on 18th March 2022 (distributed by A24).

The film stars Mia Goth as Maxine Minx/Pearl who is an exotic dancer, breaking into the world of pornography, with her wanna-be porn producer boyfriend Wayne (played by Martin Henderson). They, along with a small production team and other actors, hire a barn/production facility in a quiet rural area in Texas. The farm owners prove strange folk, and then things become sexual and violent - you'll have to watch the film for yourself to discover more. In the meantime, check out this trailer:

Titane

This French film (with English subtitles) won the Palm D'or (Golden Palm) award (one of the most prestigious film awards in the world) at the Cannes Film Festival on 17th July 2021. It is written and directed by Julia Ducournau, making her the first female director to win the Palm D'Or (by herself).

What makes "Titane" (French for Titanium) so special? Well, according to critic Leah Greenblatt for Entertainment Weekly..."In an era when nearly everything that can be done on film already has been, Titane forges something sensational from nerve and pure metal, and makes it new". We think this is somewhat of an understatement. It's an R-rated film (with strong violence, disturbing material, graphic nudity, sexual content & language) but it is so much more. Richard Roeper, at the Chicago Sun Times had this to say: "bizarre and thrilling and provocative and unnerving...a disturbing and dark madness unlike anything you've ever seen - and I mean that in a good way".

Check out this trailer:

It starts with Alexia as a young girl being involved in a car accident. Surgeons save her life be putting a metal (titanium) plate in her skull. 20 years later the film shows Alexia as an exotic dancer performing on and around cars. Now things get interesting as she turns out to be a serial killer and she gets sexually involved with a car. As the law closes in she skips town and takes on a new life as the long lost son of a firefighter. So not only is she pretending to be male but it turns out she's pregnant. If this isn't all sounding too bizarre it gets darker and even more weird as the film comes to it's conclusion. Life is tough when all you want is to be loved.

The film is distributed by Neon and is playing at USA movie theaters from Friday 1st October 2021.

Alexia (played by Agathe Rousselle) more than just likes her favorite car.


@Zola

This film is based on the real life event (although embellished) drama-comedy story of Detroit waitress A'ziah "Zola" King, who meets exotic dancer/call-girl Stefani/Jessica. They bond over pole dancing and make a wild decision to take a weekend cross-country road trip, to dance in Florida strip clubs, and make as much money as possible. What follows is a crazy tale of suspense including sex, drugs, prostitution, pimps, an attempted suicide and murder.

The screenplay for the film originates from a 148-page Twitter thread by Zola, that went viral in 2015, and gained the nomenclature "The Thotyssey". This saga is directed by Janicza Bravo and stars: Taylour Paige (as Zola) & Riley Keough (as Stefani) - which, coincidentally, is her third time playing a stripper. Launched at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2020, this "stripping & tripping" film was released in the USA on 30th June 2021 (distributed by A24). An exclusive hardbound special edition novelette (by Zola) of the original Twitter thread, with memorable lines from the film, came out on June 16th - only at the A24 Shop.

The film became available on Blu-ray and DVD from 14thSeptember 2021.


Small Chops

Released at the end of January 2021, this is a film from Nigeria in Africa, and stars Chika Ike (as Nikita) and Max Cavenham (as Casper). At a club, a wealthy businessman is attracted to a dancer and entices her with money to be his private entertainment for a weekend. However, things don't quite go as planned, and as their defenses drop, love blossoms.


Exotica

Written and Directed by the acclaimed Egyptian born Atom Egoyan, this 1994 Canadian art house film centers around a fictional Toronto based strip club "Exotica." The main characters are a customer named Francis (Bruce Greenwood), Christina an exotic dancer (Mia Kirshner), and the club DJ Eric (Elias Koteas). 

Just like a slow striptease, this psychological thriller deftly unravels, revealing the interconnected story of the characters. The dysfunctional lives are dynamic and dramatic in their complexity and, even after the end of the film, it will leave you in contemplative mood. This isn't a simple candy fluff storytelling film; it may be set in a strip club, but it has character depth as an underlying mark of its quality.
