Paper magazine got a hold of a clip and stills from James Franco's art film on the gay leather daddy subculture.
Called James Franco's 40 Minutes, the movie imagines the lost 40 minutes of the controversial 1980 William Friedkin movie Cruising. The older film starred Al Pacino as a cop infiltrating the gay leather scene in New York to catch a killer. It was widely criticized by LGBT groups for casting gay men in an unflattering light.
James Franco's 40 Minutes was a collaboration between Franco and "mumbleporn" director Travis Mathews. Mathews tells Paper, "James was interested in doing an art film that would in some way reference Cruising. And he also wanted there to be gay sex."
