Interior. Leather Bar.



2013 American Feature

Cast: James Franco, Travis Mathews, Val Lauren, Christian Patrick, Brenden Gregory, Bradley Roberge, Robbie Acklen, Osbaldo Daniel Alvarez and Collin Chavez
Directors: James Franco and Travis Mathews
Writer: Travis Mathews

Ratings:
  • Internet Movie Database: 5.1/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes - Critics: 53% / Audience: 28%
  • Metacritic - Critics: 47% / Audience: 5.7%
  • OMG rating: 4/10
  • Movie Dearest rating: B+

Buy/Rent:
  • DVD: Available



Trailer:


Notes/Trivia:
  • After Cruising was originally rated X, over 40 minutes of graphic sexual content was cut in order to obtain an R-rating from the Motion Picture Association of America. That "lost footage" served as the inspiration for the creation of Interior. Leather Bar.
  • Despite early media reports when the project was first announced, the film is not itself a recreation of the deleted footage, featuring only brief scenes that actually do so literally. Instead, it uses the idea of recreating the footage as a plot point to explore the process of making such a film, depicting issues such as the actors' level of comfort or discomfort with the material, the conflict between creative freedom and censorship, and the ways in which the cinematic representation of LGBT issues and people has evolved since Cruising was originally released in 1980.

  • The sexually explicit deleted scenes from Cruising were "re-imagined" for this film.
