Rate this:
A provocative docufiction exploration of the importance of the radical and transgressive in society and the value of engaging with the unfamiliar. Brings forward the questions of sex and the limits society places on what constitutes porn or socially provocative and what actors both gay and straight feel about the production and its message. Inspired by the mythology surrounding the highly controversial 1980 film, Cruising and the x-rated footage that was deleted from it.

rather dull

This is a queer one. (HARDYHARHAR). Only a celebrity actor with a jones for experimentation and an interest in the transgressive could get this made. It’s very meta….although the premise is a recreation of the “lost” scenes of the film “Cruising”, the real takeaway of the piece is the discomfort caused by the explicit depiction of gay sex, both in the actors, and in the industry. The tension between this discomfort, and the “tongues hanging out” opportunity to work with and get noticed by James Franco adds an inadvertent and wryly comic undertone. Not quite an “art” piece, not quite an erotic vision, this movie works best as a portrait of an industry where fame is worshipped so much that all are willing to bend over backwards (and even get paddled) to get just a little piece of it.
