Scorpio Rising
Scorpio Rising
An experimental short film exploring the occult and the gay biker subculture, which was beginning to blossom in Brooklyn garages. Anger uses 50's era rock and roll music and Hollywood iconography to craft what many call the first "music video."
Cruising
Cruising
William Friedkin (The Exorcist, Sorcerer), tackles the controversial topic of "cruising" and the gay underground of NYC. Al Pacino stars as a cop who goes undercover to investigate a murder and finds out more about himself than he does solve a crime. Notoriously plagued with protests from the gay community at the time, it has since gained some admiration for being a prescient look at pre-AIDS culture in the Big Apple. James Franco famously directed a feature about the unseen "hardcore" portion of the movie, titled Interior. Leather Bar. (2013).
