Cruising ★★★

Cruising is a frustrating film as the first half is excellent in keeping you invested it's twisted and uncomfortably grimy. Is Pacino having a sexual identity crisis? Traveling through this seedy world you're never sure what his true feelings are. The second half is just as twisted and it looks great however, it feels like there is a decision to not tell us the true intentions. It becomes confusing and illogical - I don't mind ambiguous endings but the last third was so scattershot I'm not sure at all what it was saying.

The film looks deliciously nasty and nothing is out of bounds, anything can happen at the turn of a corner making it thrilling from start to finish.
