We’re back! You can also see the new Crossing the Line at Theoretically Evil!
Cruising is a charming little undercover police story where Al Pacino has to infiltrate the seedy and dangerous world of gay S&M clubs to stop some gay murders. As a film, it’s a bit of a mess and the protests by gay groups did not make a huge impact on the straight public.
Tagline: Al Pacino is Cruising for a killer.
Synopsis: A serial killer brutally slays and dismembers several gay men in New York’s S&M and leather districts. The young police officer Steve Burns is sent undercover onto the streets as decoy for the murderer. Working almost completely isolated from his department, he has to learn and practice the complex rules and signals of this little society. While barely seeing his girlfriend Nancy anymore, the work starts changing him.
Interesting Fact: Most of the nightclub scenes were shot in real New York S&M clubs and the extras were largely actual patrons directed to act like they normally would in the club.
Objectionable material: Tons of dude butt, ass-less chaps, implied anal fisting, aggressive straight sex, a fairly bizarre idea of the psychology behind the gay leather community, a whole lot of shirtless hairy sweaty dudes being very sexual, Paul Sorvino, a poor understanding of the rules of pool, innuendo all over the place, somewhat graphic murders, jock straps, drug use, the implication of lots of homosexual sex and sex acts, cross-dressing
Disturbing Quote: All [smoking] is is anal regressive. If you want to quit I suggest you try another form of childhood stroking. Read the rest of this entry »

Before the show ends I feel like it would be good to share the Lost drinking game with the world. Because Lost is a show that is constantly evolving (or ruining a good thing if you’re some sort of loser who hates Lost), new rules were developed as old ones ceased to be applicable. No need to worry about math, every instance of a rule means 1 drink.
