Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Academy Award-winner William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection) directs Al Pacino as an undercover cop pitched into New York's seedy underbelly in Cruising – available for the first time on Blu-ray in a brand new director-approved transfer.

New York is caught in the grip of a sadistic serial killer who is preying on the patrons of the city's underground bars. Captain Edelson (Paul Sorvino) tasks young rookie Steve Burns (Pacino) with infiltrating the S&M subculture to try and lure the killer out of the shadows – but as he immerses himself deeper and deeper into the underworld, Steve risks losing his own identity in the process.

Taking the premise and title from reporter Gerald Walker's novel, Cruising was the subject of great controversy at the time of its release and remains a challenging and remarkable movie to this day, with Pacino's haunted lead performance as its magnetic centrepiece.

Loathsome

Great quality picture and sound BUT this movie is deeply homophobic. It’s outrageous Zavvi is selling a movie that pedals hate towards the LGBTQI+ community

A nice suprise

I'm a huge Pacino fan but this is a film I had never heard of and throughly enjoyed it

Excellent Arrow release

Another amazing transfer from Arrow. The film has never looked better, definitely recommended.

Cruising

This film is one of my favourite al pacino films and when I saw this on zavvi, I had to buy it, The package is lovely, arrow and zavvi are doing a great job for those of us that loves to collect films

Cruising

Interesting hard boiled film. Not for the faint hearted. Great bonus features too.
