Writer/director John Cameron Mitchell follows up the cult classic HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH with another salacious slice of sex-laden cinema. Mitchell interweaves three separate tales of highly sexed and sexually frustrated New Yorkers, all of whom find some kind of salvation at an underground club named Shortbus. Anything goes at Shortbus--wild orgies between people from different ages, backgrounds, and sexual preferences are treated as commonplace, and most of the sex scenes shot through Mitchell's voyeuristic lens are completely unsimulated. Mitchell allows little time for his audience to pause for breath, opening SHORTBUS with a frantic collage of copulation and carnality that features most of his central characters. These include Sofia (Sook-Yin Lee), a sex therapist who has never reached full orgasm; gay couple James (Paul Dawson) and Jamie (PJ DeBoy); and Severin (Lindsay Beamish), a dominatrix who finds herself unable to find true love. Mitchell lets his cast of characters unravel their tales of woe, interspersing the touching and mostly sad stories with eye-popping scenes from Shortbus and swooping birds-eye shots of a computer simulated version of New York City. The director also draws heavily on an indie-rock soundtrack, making repeated and effective use of the beautiful Winters Love by Brooklyn-based group Animal Collective. But it's the sex scenes that will really get tongues wagging, and its testament to Mitchell's fearless and uncompromising vision that he depicts sexual acts that run the full coital gamut, from amusing to titillating to shocking. Amid all the boundary-pushing there is a tender heart buried in SHORTBUS's central narrative, which revolves around the search for identity and acceptance.

very very explicit film,with lots of gay scenes ...............no h4te jus sayin :w00t:

*shows actual penetration,oral sex and male orgasms - you have been warned!!!*

tbh i thought this was a crap film. good deal though

How to use the voucher? Can anyone confirm the voucher actually working, please.

Couldn't get the voucher to work either...

This film is ****. The sex scenes are crap and the acting is awful. If you want real sex in a mainstream film watch '9 Songs'. Not brilliant but much better than this tosh.

Good Price

I ride the short bus !

The film isn't bad at all, and the owner of the Shortbus club (Justin something-whose-name-escapes-me?) is the best character. The national anthem scene is hilarious!

Definitely don't buy if you're offended by urination or autofellatio...
