  1. Sarah Fonseca's rating of the film Interior. Leather Bar.

    Franco & Mathews, playing themselves, stage a contemporary, imagined production of the lost bar scenes as their actors battle (sometimes as frenetically as the original Steve Burns) their own internalized homophobia…at times, the attention to their panic does the experiment's broader mission a disservice. This docufiction is Franco and Mathews’ attempt at addressing age-old questions of assimilation vs liberation.

  3. El Biffo's rating of the film Interior. Leather Bar.

    I was expecting to see the finished product of this creative project, not a "making of" or "behind the scenes" thing, or even worse at times this felt like a reality TV show about doing this project. The few minutes of sex scenes were cool, tho.

  4. Ali Ercivan's rating of the film Interior. Leather Bar.

    Serves to show how pretentious James Franco really is.

  5. Tiago Gonçalves's rating of the film Interior. Leather Bar.

    Pretty accurate! It reaches its subject (and the subsequent message) in a very creative way, blending documentary, mockumentary and fiction. Not to be seen as a movie, but as a manifesto through filmmaking.

  7. Fainéant's rating of the film Interior. Leather Bar.

    two 'LOL's out of five. shit

  8. leonardo costa's rating of the film Interior. Leather Bar.

    at first I was disappointed, but then it grows on me.

  9. Catarina C Gomes's rating of the film Interior. Leather Bar.

    "it's in bad taste" "well, we shot it in a tastful way". I hate Franco for picking up books to adapt and fuck up, but when the guy starts a project from scratch with the objective of confronting and defy audiences and mentalities, I have to ride along with it. It's nasty and to the point and I wish there were more movies like this.

  10. RodrigoPereira's rating of the film Interior. Leather Bar.

    Certainly didn't appreciate some of the editing in Franco's argument with the main actor, which is to me the quintessential part of this project. [I'm gay in art and straight in real life? What the fuck, Franco. What the fuck.]

  11. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Interior. Leather Bar.

    A fascinating look at sexuality and finding the truth

  12. Bastian Faldano's rating of the film Interior. Leather Bar.

    I'm so surprise when I saw this with the rating 5/5 man.. its so fucking good.. and also seeing James Franco as director, I think it'll fucking good to watch

  13. msmichel's rating of the film Interior. Leather Bar.

    FNC '13 Mathews and Franco's decision to revisit the missing footage from 'Cruising' is just the jumping off point for this brave, fascinating but in the end unsatisfying experiment. Mixing in recreation, frank discussion, gay pornography with a 'meta' type self examination makes for an interesting hour but needed a little more length and substance to be fulfilling. Well worth a watch but not revelatory.

  14. Checkpoint Charlie's rating of the film Interior. Leather Bar.

    Wonder what Hurricane Billy's thoughts are on this...

  16. Ricardo Branco's rating of the film Interior. Leather Bar.

    Dark and mysterious. Quite a mind fuck: you're inside it but you're not seeing it in its whole. I found it really peculiar and interesting, even scary sometimes.

  17. i hate movies's rating of the film Interior. Leather Bar.

    what kept this from being perfect (and it came close) was honestly that it feels like it needed a third act. according to the DP at the q&a, they only had two days to shoot because of james franco's schedule, which is a shame because there are brilliant things happening here (despite my reservations about franco as an "artist") that really deserve another half hour of film. that being said, it's still fascinating.

  18. Gillian Sore's rating of the film Interior. Leather Bar.

    This is so wonderfully constructed, I loved the conscious decision to show the staged elements of the documentary style footage.
