"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.

I usually try not to read film reviews for fear of spoilers, and walked into this one just on my blind faith in the director. Now, you've got me curious to hunt down some of the reviews just to enjoy the "OMG! TEH SEXORS!!!" commments.
