I am fully prepared to see five star raves that equate "Interior. Leather Bar." to a brilliant social critique. I'm also expecting to see plenty of one star dismissals that call this pointless and even pornographic. I'll just say this. There are some interesting discussion-worthy ideas brought up by the movie, but there is little to no follow-through on examining these notions with any depth.
So, the idea behind "Interior. Leather Bar" is to reconstruct forty minutes of lost footage from William Friedkin's notorious "Cruising." This 1980 film starring Al Pacino was definitely controversial for its day for its rather one sided depiction of a same sex culture.Read more ›
The viewer spends more time watching the filming of what seemed to be 2 scenes. I'm not sure if the two scenes even added up to 40 minutes; no, they didn't.
At one point the "actors" in the film were discussing how sexually charged the film was going to be. Sadly, it was a big flop!
Franco had a great opportunity to make something significant and focused but instead it was an unorganized mess with no vision whatsoever. Do not waste your money purchasing this "film".
The reality is a movie that simply got lost because the vision wasn't strong enough.
They recreate the 40 minutes (which you don't see but small, boring, vanilla clips) and then focus on the straight actor who has to play a gay man...oooohhh, such a challenge! What a stretch!
Throughout the movie, everyone stands around and wonders what their doing....I recommend you don't watch this film or you will wonder why you ever did.
