Shortbus Premier fell anywhere but short of people's expectations

Sunday night at 12:30am was the premier of the controversial independent film, "Shortbus," directed by John Cameron Mitchell. While many films these days seem to have a lot of sexual content, this one most likely takes the cake.

"Shortbus" starts out going back and forth between seeing an animated, almost claymation-like, scenery of New York, zooming in on several different people's appartments, giving the audience a sneak peak into the private lives of very different New Yorkers, each trying to overcome different problems with their sexual encounters and/or emotional relationships. The first five minutes or so flash back and forth between several couples encounters in an up-beat comedic light. While most of the movie has a sense of humour about sex, the film also has many moving and touching moments of emotional character developement. At the end of the film there was a standing ovation, moving the director and several of the actors to tears. While this unrated film may shock many people, it also has a lot of character insight to offer. If you think you can handle it, I highly recommend this film.
