Cruising for Bruising Entertainment

8 years, 10 months 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'

"11.5. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Paul Sorvino lähettää Al Pacinon, joka ei ole koskaan imenyt kyrpää, peitetehtäviin, koska tämä näyttää homolta. Friedkin troolailee uhrien, murhaajan ja Pacinon yhdennäköisyydellä niin, että Pacino pelkää olevansa homo ja/tai murhaaja. Viikset pelastavat murhatuksi tai poliisin kaltoinkohtelemaksi tulemiselta. Nahkahomosploitaatio fistauksineen on aivan mahtavaa tavaraa ja on helppo uskoa, kuinka tuo on raivostuttanut kriitikoita, jotka toki esii"

"Yllättävintä tässä oli se, että Al Pacino näytellessään Tom of Finland -vermeissä sadomasohomostelevaa kyttää perukki päässä ei kerrankin huuda ja riehu koko aikaa vaan kuiskailee ja möllöttää kuin opiaattipöllyssä. Cruising on vissiin aika vihattu tekele jännärikalkkunan muotonsa ja vihamielisen ennakkoluuloisuuden sävyttämän sisältönsä takia. Tykkäsin silti: tyylikästä kuvausta, hyvät soundtrackit. Lopun ns. twisti oli pöhköydessään nautinnollinen. Tunnel"
