Amazing this film got made. - Cruising review by JE

It's not an easy watch and avoid it if you have issues with the subject of Leather Bars and S&M Clubs. However if you're open minded it is a snapshot into a pre AIDS epidemic world that no longer exists. A pretty important film in my opinion and Friedkin is a really important director. If you rent the Blu-ray version you get a excellent commentary track by the director and Mark Kermode which explains the history, controversy and missing 40 minutes of the film.
