fascinating...but not quite sure what its all about...
on 4 February 2014
Having seen CRUISING when it was first released, it was certainly an interesting and confronting film, for its time, given it features straight actors and a straight director, with a major studio producing it. However it challenged all sorts of issues around gay lifestyles, and having Al Pacino in the lead only made it much more titillating, and full marks to hime fort doing it.
But INTERIOR, LEATHER BAR is essentially a curiosity. Are we to assume that there will be the 40 minutes of film that has been 're-imagined' made available at some later date? I have to say its not all that interesting to me either way.....Otherwise, what is the point of this documentary? It looks like its one of the 'special features' extras on the DVD that has the complete 40 minutes of re-filmed footage - which is exactly what the INTERIOR: LEATHER BAR is all about?....
I'm a great fan of James Franco...but with this 59 minute release, I get the feeling that the 40 minutes of actual footage has gone to a private collection.....question is...who's?
