A bleakly chilling emotional travelogue of desperation, loneliness and spiritual hunger, Cruising stars Al Pacino as a naive undercover cop who descends into the leather-bar underworld of New York’s gay S&M scene.
Widely condemned and misinterpreted on its release, Cruising emerges today as one of Friedkin’s major works - it succeeds as a police procedural, horror film (there are scenes every bit as terrifying as The Exorcist), and saga of one seemingly "decent" man’s inability to face the truth about himself.
Featuring a terrific score by composer Jack Nitzsche, with songs by The Germs.
