Orrin Grey’s review published on Letterboxd:
Is CRUISING homophobic? Of course it is, in perhaps the most literal possible sense of the word. The entire film is like one long, sustained note of gay panic; one that the controversial and ambiguous ending only amplifies.
Yet there is a taut intensity in almost every aspect of the film that is hard to beat and almost impossible to deny.
