Cruising

Cruising

Incredible document of NYC, and a really great slasher/thriller to boot; questionable is Friedkin's cross-cutting of anal penetration with the stabbing of a knife (is this the murderer himself connecting his repressed sexuality with violence [I'm thinking probably] or just the movie saying hey, sex and violence eh? eh?)

Drags a pinch through the end but the film really lands on its feet imo. Didn't realize it would be as much a slasher / giallo riff as it was.
