Goner Message Board / ???? / Cruising (the movie)
Posted: May 7, 2006 9:46 am
I flipped on the tube and was looking through the listing and I see that Cruising was playing on IFC. I'd always wanted to see this since reading that The Germs had a song in the movie. Wow. It's an Al Pacino flick too. The movie had already been on for an hour when I turned it on. So I look to see when it would be on next and it had no listings so I go to IMDB and there's a thread about it. Someone posted the times it's gonna be on and those are: Mon May 15 11:00P on Independent Film Channel
Tue May 16 03:00A on Independent Film Channel

I turned the thing off after seeing it was gonna play again. Can't wait. The few minutes I did see looked good: Al Pacino in a leather jacket and some shots of NY.

This movie rules! I think I read that a lot of gays boycotted it when it first came out.

In Chicago, North Coast video (damen and division) has it and the time I rented it the clerk was quoting lines from the movie. It is pretty genius.

Thanks for posting this, I've wanted to see this movie for years.

oh man - you all make me feel really old. i saw it in the theatre when it came out some 25 years ago.

yeah - a lot of protest/boycott against the movie from gay groups or "representatives" of the gay community when it was released

i think it holds up. its a good cop story about an undercover cop getting too into his case. it just happens to be set in the world of leather fetish gay men.

Because of this movie every upbeat Mink DeVille song kinda sounds a little gay to me now.

Coloured bandanas!!

I had kind of shut this one out of the memory...the huffing dance brought it all back. Thanks!

Not a great movie as I recall...but some special scenes none-the-less.

I thought is was a cool flick, and the hufmanning dancing cracks me up every time. A good study on how going deep cover in the leather scene could screw with the repressed fagoli lurking within an undercover detective.

This is the single most disturbing movie I have ever seen. I was about 18 when I saw it and walked out of the theater wanting to shower.

walked out of the theater wanting to shower.

I haven't seen this movie but I've watched some of my roommates gay porn videos and it didn't do a single thing to me. I just thought it was funny and kinda sat there transfixed watching teen guys fuck on the beach and macho hunks fucking each other on a bed and in the shower. The weirdest was this scene where a couple of young guys were fucking in a tree and the guy getting fucked turns around and takes a big load in his mouth and on his cheek. Hot. It was an experience. Fun times.
