»Cruising is a fascinating cultural phenomenon, both for its emotional tone and for the story of the failed communication between Friedkin and the gay rights groups protesting his making of it.«

INTERIOR. LEATHER BAR. trailer from Travis Mathews on Vimeo.

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.

»Lee Daniels‘ Adaption von Pete Dexters „Paperboy“ ist ein schwüler, hitziger Southern-Gothic-Film geworden, in dem vor allem die unterdrückten sexuellen Leidenschaften der Figuren dargelegt werden. Von dem Geflecht aus Journalismus, Wahrheit und Rassismus aus Pete Dexters Roman ist dabei aber nur wenig übriggeblieben.«
