Voyeurism Is Participation

John Cameron Mitchell (Headwig and the Angry Inch) takes his second stab at directing in “Shortbus”, an experimental and sharp look at sex and all it’s funny, scary, heartbreaking and rejuvenating qualities, where the picture doesn’t fade to black once the actors take their clothes off.  Although a little cliche at times, any non-pornographic film that opens with a man sucking his own cock and cumming on his own face is worth a once over in my book.  All the sex is real.  It’s quirky and sentimental, exploring sex disguised as love and love disguised as sex, and considering many of the varying emotional states attached to the orgasm, all while being unapologetically and unabashedly explicit.  A sincere portrait of a group of new yorkers all struggling with their own intimate problems, Shortbus is nothing if not over the top, good natured, and fun to look at.  Music by Yo La Tengo to boot.

“If there is such thing as hard core with a soft heart this is it” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
