Directed by William Friedkin | 1980

With Al Pacino, Paul Sorvino, Karen Allen

“An amazing time capsule—a heady, horny flashback to the last gasp of full-blown sexual abandon.”
—The Village Voice

Pacino takes viewers on a tour of the best gay S&M bars in New York City in 1980. Officially, he does this as detective Steve Burns, an undercover cop tracking a crazed serial killer who finds victims in gay bars. But the real pleasure of this controversial film lies in its glimpse into raucous, real-life parties at famous leather bars like the Eagle’s Nest and the Cockpit—and Pacino’s hapless, bumbling presence in this milieu. Director Friedkin taps into the paranoia that swept New York’s gay community after it suffered a sweep of unsolved murders—and it lost the very first victims of a mysterious illness that would later be called AIDS.
