CALIFORNIA PREMIERE. – Official Sundance Selection.
The 1980 film Cruising (starring Al Pacino as an undercover cop investigating a murder in the NYC gay leather bar scene) was plagued with controversy, and its director was forced by the MPAA to cut 40 minutes of sexually explicit material. Filmmakers James Franco and Travis Mathews set out to reimagine what might have transpired in those lost scenes in this documentary-style film about the making of a film. The cameras roll as Franco and Mathews assemble a mix of gay and straight men, focusing on the actor (Val Lauren)who portrays Al Pacino.
