★★★★☆In 1980, Al Pacino starred in The Exorcist director William Friedkin's controversial Cruising. The film focused on undercover cop Steve Burns (Pacino) who is sent onto the streets as a decoy for a serial killer who has dismembered several homosexual men in New York's gay district. It's famously rumoured that to avoid an X-rating, forty minutes of gay S&M footage was cut from the film and permanently destroyed. Inspired by this mythology, actor James Franco and Travis Matthews (I Want Your Love) joined forces to create Interior. Leather Bar (2013), their own personal interpretation of Friedkin's lost footage.
