Talk:Cruising (film)

As written[edit]

As written this article looks like little more than a tirade against the film. POV is presented as facts without any references cited to support it, aspects and meanings of the film that viewers have debated are presented here with only one (disputed) interpretation mentioned, and the article consists of about 80% criticism of the film. Needs either a complete rewrite, or somebody to go through and edit out the POV and factual inaccuracies and add a discussion of the different interpretations of the film to balance out the one already discussed.

I do not see any factual faults with the film. By all accounts I have ever seen the film was a financial bomb, film critics had little good to say about it and gay critics saw it as bigoted.

Thanks, the rewrite looks a whole lot better. Kaibabsquirrel 2 July 2005 21:00 (UTC)

Infobox Image[edit]

There was no image in the infobox, so I added an image of the original poster. Unfortunately, the one I retrieved from has some rather unsightly folds. If someone could locate an original poster image in better shape I would appreciate it. Thanks. Reimelt 17:56, 7 July 2006 (UTC)


I agree with the comments made above. For full disclosure, I really enjoyed the film, but this article is so impartial it acts as one part spoiler and two-parts rant. It needs some serious editing. Daveworksunion 17:35, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Cruising movie poster.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Cruising movie poster.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
