"Shortbus"

John Cameron Mitchell (writer/director/star of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch") has a new film out called "Shortbus." I caught it this weekend and thought it was pretty good, though nowhere near as hugely awesome as "Hedwig." It's about a handful of New Yorkers (with varying sex issues) that frequent this sort of club/salon called Shortbus where people go to talk about sex, have sex, watch other people have sex, and generally hang out in a partylike environment with other sex-minded people. As the host says, while watching the orgy room with a first timer, "It's like the Sixties, but with less hope!"

The film looks great, from the non-Hollywood cast to the gorgeous miniature handpainted version of New York City that the camera flies across between scenes to the very real-looking (and possibly just plain real) sex scenes.
