A dispossessed, violent man's life is a disastrous attempt to exist outside the social order. Successively deprived of parents and homes and with few other ties, Ballard descends to the level of a cave dweller as he falls deeper into crime and degradation.

In order to avoid an X rating, 40 minutes of gay S&M footage was rumored to be cut and destroyed from the 1980 film, "Cruising." Inspired by the mythology of this controversial film, filmmakers James Franco and Travis Mathews collaborate to imagine their own lost footage. Amid the backdrop of a frenzied film set actor Val Lauren reluctantly agrees to take the lead in the film. Val is repeatedly forced to negotiate his boundaries during scenes on and "off camera," as unsimulated gay sex happens around him. The film itself is constructed as a play with boundaries remaining queer in subject and form. As much a film about filmmaking as it is about an exploration of sexual and creative freedom, "Interior. Leather Bar." defies easy categorization. Written by
Dicks are out. Balls are out. People are paddling each other in the ass. There are bruises. There are fucking welts. Sucking. Fucking. Armpits. Balls. Assholes. Everything is out, dude.

I wish IMDb had a negatives rating system because i would so go there .Here is the thing with this the philosophy behind this movie ,franco claims he is tired of the original straight way sex is portrayed .That's all well and good if the majority of society was straight .The reality is there is all kinds of different sexes in this culture . There was a good reason why 40 minutes of the original was cut out i'm sure .There was absolutely no reason what so ever for 40 minutes of just straight gay sexuality to be thrown in this film ;especially if it didn't serve a purpose .This is self indulgences at it's fullest showing gay sex for the sake of gay sex isn't art or artistic .This is the type of pretentious garbage that should be boycotted .Yes it depicts unsimulated gay sex acts big f'in deal .Get to the mf'in point Travis Mathews and James Franco .This isn't about 40 minutes of a movie that was cut out as it was a movie about a confused man exploring his homosexuality . James franco you aren't fooling you prentious dung heep time to come out the of the mf'in closet .Show your true colors you been a closeted gay your whole life .No legit straight man would come out with something like this .This is just gay sex for the sake of showing it don't be fooled by these clowns . You think a seasoned veteran like Pacino would of wasted his time with this trash ?.Hell f'in NO !,the point of the films intentions was completely forgotten . Or in this case ignored its just and excuse to show gay porn and pass it off as some art house decor .The truth shall set you free seriously , don't buy into this crap .I skimmed through it and it is the biggest con job ever . There is absolutely nothing in this film that is ground breaking or challenging .The original film has a lot more integrity than this garbage .That's the point ,the original film struck chord this film is just flat .There is a reason for the editing floor it's so crap like this has a place to dwell on . To all you who would rate this above a 1 and are not gay stop drinking that kool aid .Quit lying to yourself quit telling yourself its for the sake of art . Stop telling yourself that it's OK because it's James Franco doing it ,the man is the biggest con artist ever .He's downright gay but he lacks the cojones to just come out and say it .So he collaborates with some one who produces nothing but self indulgent swine just so he comes off as legit .Time to take the blinders off to this garbage james franco needs his ass kicked ;any respectable actor and or gay man would show no respect for this man or what he does .
