With Al Pacino, Paul Sorvino, Karen Allen, Richard Cox, Don Scardino

“…a heady, horny flashback to the last gasp of full-blown sexual abandon, and easily the most graphic depiction of gay sex ever seen in a mainstream movie.”
—The Village Voice

NYPD detective Steve Burns (Pacino) goes undercover sporting a tank top and leather peaked cap in the leather bar underground of a pre-AIDS West Village to catch an S&M serial killer targeting gay men. But he finds himself starting to like his new role maybe a little too much. Wildly controversial (its production sparked protests from the gay community), Friedkin’s garish, graphic noir is “a lurid fever dream of popper fumes, color-coded pocket hankies, hardcore disco frottage, and Crisco-coated forearms"(Nathan Lee, The Village Voice).
