Synopsis – What to Expect from “Cruising”
Cruising is a 1980 American thriller film directed by William Friedkin and starring Al Pacino. The film follows Pacino as he plays a police officer named Steve Burns, who goes undercover in the gay S&M subculture of New York City in order to catch a serial killer targeting gay men.
The film opens with a series of gruesome murders of gay men in New York City. Steve Burns, a police officer, is assigned to the case and is asked to go undercover in the gay S&M scene in order to catch the killer. Steve reluctantly agrees, and goes undercover as a gay leatherman.
Steve visits various gay bars and clubs, trying to find the killer. He meets a variety of people, from a shy young man named Ted to a flamboyant drag queen named Nancy. Steve also finds himself attracted to a young man named Ted, and begins a relationship with him.
Meanwhile, the murders continue and Steve finds himself getting closer to the killer. He eventually discovers that the killer is a closeted gay man who is trying to rid the world of homosexuals. In the end, Steve is able to stop the killer and the murders come to an end.
The film ends with Steve and Ted together, and Steve finally accepting his homosexuality. Cruising is a dark and gritty thriller that explores the dangers of going undercover and the social stigma of being gay in the 1980s.
