Overview

Inspired by the controversy surrounding William Friedkin's gay-themed 1980 thriller Cruising, filmmakers James Franco and Travis Matthews team up for this experimental drama that aims to recreate the 40 minutes of sexually explicit scenes that the MPAA demanded be removed from the film in order for it to secure an "R" rating. Due to the fact that the scenes in question were never screened publicly, no one except for the studio and the MPAA can be certain of exactly how far they went.
