Cruising

Still controversial after 40 years.

A drenched-in-sleaze serial killer film set largely in New York leather bars, this earned rightful protests from gay rights activists, and will surely offend a lot of modern viewers.

That said, it has some very effective moments, an air of mystery which lingers through the end credits, and a gnarly lead performance from Al Pacino.

A cop on the edge, in more ways than one if you read between the lines, he slouches through the dark heart of the city, maybe more of a danger than any of the suspects.

Don’t judge until you’ve seen it.
