In William Friedkin’s intense and controversial thriller, NYPD officer Steve Burns (Al Pacino) is sent to work undercover in the S&M leather bars of the West Village to track down a serial killer targeting gay men. But descending deeper into the role takes a toll on his relationships and his damaged psyche as he witnesses the brutality of both the killer and the police towards the community.

“Viewed from almost three decades’ distance, Cruising now looks like a masterly work of psychological disorientation, guilty only of a certain insensitivity – in putting the most extreme imaginable example of gay sexual subculture into a mainstream film – but innocent of any homophobic intention. Pacino’s performance as the undercover cop who gets drawn into the leather underworld is extraordinary and sensitive, and the film’s frank depiction of the pre-AIDS night world of gay Manhattan remains shocking. No one would get away with it now, or even try.” – Andrew O’Hehir, Salon.com
