Cruising for Bruising Entertainment

1 year ago at Jan 26 21:53
Possibly my least favorite Pacino role... before I saw '88 Minutes'. I was so disappointed in this film, seeing that was starring Pacino and directed by the wild Friedkin, who had not disappointed to this point of me watching his films.

I actually finished it but struggled through it. Luckily he made up for the weakness of this film with 'To Live and Die in LA'

"Once protested by the gay community, William Friedkin’s thriller serves as an unintended snapshot of a narrow slice of the pre-AIDS Village scene, with sequences filmed at the legendary leather club Hellfire. Al Pacino serves as the audience’s enigmatic window onto S&M culture, playing an undercover cop who may be repelled by (or drawn to) everything he’s seeing.—Alison Willmore"

" William Friedkin's sexually-frank thriller offended gay-rights activists by implying that homosexuality inevitably leads to murder."

"Home - New I get why people are fascinated by the film because there's definitely something under the surface, it's one of those compelling puzzles. But in terms of cinema the film it reminded me of the most was NEW YORK RIPPER in how much it fetishes the murders and the tone which sort of suggest that the killings are a recursive reaction to the hedonism of the New York gay scene. Having the killer be played by multiple actors and having Pacino seem to be possessed by the desire to murder gay"

"Director:William Friedkin Starring:Al Pacino,Paul Sorvino,Karen Allen Cruising is a 1980 film directed by William Friedkin and starring Al Pacino. The film is loosely based on the novel, by New York Times reporter Gerald Walker, about a 1970s New York City serial killer targeting gay men, in particular those associated with the S&M scene. Poorly reviewed by critics, Cruising was a modest financial success, though the filming and promotion were dogged by gay rights protesters. The title is"
