Critic Reviews for Interior. Leather Bar.
"Interior. Leather Bar." is a Rubik's Cube of a movie, an intriguing, layered puzzle that isn't easily solved.
We see brief, graphic shots of naked actors performing sexual acts. But it's the conversations about what those depictions represent that truly provoke.
It largely consists of Franco musing about depictions of homosexual activity on film.
Audience Reviews for Interior. Leather Bar.
Utterly pointless, pretentious and stupid.
The film started off with the promise of being the reimaging of the lost scenes of the Al Pacino movie, "Cruising". Then it some how turned into a hot mess of a lot of nothing. I was as confused as Val most of the time. I understand what Franco was saying when he spoke about believing that we are brought up in a box and nurtured to believe that only a certain way of loving, living, and expressing yourself sexually is to be between a woman and a man. I liked that he pushed for a more out of the box kind of documentary, but it all just got so messed up along the way. And the Dom guy was super creepy, IMO. It's not something I would watch again. But not because of the content, but because of the confused mess it is.
Not at all what I expected. The film is not so much about the seedy material that might have been cut from the original Cruising film -- it's more about contemporary reactions to the material and challenging modern society's value judgments about sexuality. Thought provoking. I recommend this film for an audience with adult attitudes and open minds.
