Al Pacino In Leather
Went to see William Friedkin speak at the Castro the other night before a restored screening of Cruising. Friedkin talked about hanging out in the Gay clubs doing research and being forced to listen to Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder. For his soundtrack he put in the Germs, Mink DeViille, John Hiatt etc.... His defense in the Q and A? "Oh, it's not accurate at all. It's not a documentary, it's a movie. I just never liked disco." The gay community was outraged when it came out. Not everyone was ready got forgive and forget. It got heated during the Q and A. I dug it. The quais murder mystery fizzles out at the end. But Pacino is nothing less than a trip throughout.
