This movie is rarely mentioned when Al Pacino's filmography is mentioned. It makes me wonder if he is holding it up. I'm glad I kept the vhs.

the film is being shown at the upcoming Cannes Festival as a special screening sidebar. One can only believe that the film has been restored both visually and aurally. As you recall even the soundtrack was quite dynamic for its time. Keep your fingers crossed.

I read today that the film has indeed been remastered by Mr. Friedkin and there are plans to reissue it in the theaters around September of '07, with a DVD release to follow after the standard waiting period after that. I wish they would include some of the deleted footage said to exist, but given the controversy the film generated, that is likely doubtful.

William Friedkin was recently interviewed on "Sunday Morning Shootout" as part of their coverage of the Cannes festival. When he was asked about whether the restored version of "Cruising" was his original cut of the film, Friedkin said no since the studio destroyed the footage that was removed. He said that he wanted to put it back in, but it no longer exists. So the 140 minute cut of "Cruising" no longer exists.

That is truly horrible! I was always under the impression that the 140 minute version existed...I even remeber Friedkin saying that it did, and he couldn't wait to put it onto a disc someday, because people are going to be totally shocked and repulsed by it? But it may have been destroyed in the interim...I know for a fact that Hollywood has a BIG problem with Billy Friedkin...I was told that they "hate, hate, hate Billy Friedkin!" and that was from a good friend of his who worked as an editor on Sorcerer. He said Holly wood hates Friedkin and thats why his work continually gets "the shaft'...figures?
