IMDB : 5.2 (1,869 votes)


 

Description In order to avoid an X rating, 40 minutes of gay S&M footage was rumored to be cut and destroyed from the 1980 film, "Cruising." Inspired by the mythology of this controversial film, filmmakers James Franco and Travis Mathews collaborate to imagine their own lost footage. Amid the backdrop of a frenzied film set actor Val Lauren reluctantly agrees to take the lead in the film. Val is repeatedly forced to negotiate his boundaries during scenes on and "off camera," as unsimulated gay sex happens around him. The film itself is constructed as a play with boundaries remaining queer in subject and form. As much a film about filmmaking as it is about an exploration of sexual and creative freedom, "Interior. Leather Bar." defies easy categorization.

    If I, as a gay man, can watch "lesbian" porn and not freak out about it, a straight man can do the same with gay porn. I never quite understood why the entire film focused on the lead's obsessive uncomfortableness with the film's subject matter. It seemed a bit much.

    James Franco is a coward I have a hard time believing a straight man would be so interested in explicit gay sex. I saw the film very sexually explicit with blow jobs and anal sex between gay men. I have a hard time believing a straight man would be interested in explicit gay sex.

    The fact that so many people think just because Franco is so "obsessed" with homosexuality and and "secretly gay" and won't come out, further proves why this was made and why we need to move forward. Fucking hell some people are just so heteronormative and close minded. That is how most of us grew up which just shows why some of us are too afraid of anything other than straight.

    time for James Franco to come out if you saw interior leather bar like I did it has graphic scenes of gay men having sex. Franco is fooling no one he is gay or bisexual and also a coward.

    James Franco is obsessed with homosexuality. It's fine but makes you wonder about a "straight" actor, he claims to be.

    I don't understand--I thought this was about "Cruising"--why does everyone look like they stepped out of 2014?

    Franco is a pretentious twat. Thank you for your interest in gay sex. You deserve an award!! Back now to making movies for the mentally challenged with your bud Seth Rogen!

    I am such a huge, fan of James Franco, I think he is one of the most talented actors of our time ( and Edward Norton) my feelings were hurt that like in so many other aspects of the gay community men of color are not included and disregarded.
  • hnnotyy 2014-04-22 22:07:22
    Filmmakers James Franco and Travis Mathews re-imagine the lost 40 minutes from "Cruising" as a starting point to a broader exploration of sexual and creative freedom.

    I really don't understand this, can someone explain?

    So many good artists in this movie.. but you picked the worst title EVER for a movie.. and because of that INCREDIBLY BAD DECISION.. few people will see this movie because of the title.  I am sure whoever made that decision thought it was cool and hip.. But its not. Its lame as hell and will not attract the cool crowd like you thought it would.

In their new environment, the men relinquish their frat mentality and realize how hurtful they have been to women over the years. When their less-than-stunning female forms earn them an invite to a "dog catcher" party at their old frat, they decide to brave the harassment so they can grab the rest of their belongings from the house and...
