Shortbus

Loved the animated New York stuff, really liked the first half of the film, the sex scenes were good, but I got way bored with most of the characters and stories by the end.

I really like Mitchell's filmmaking style and the way this film even came about is quite interesting - perhaps even more interesting than the movie itself. Real sex on film, real couples, the script was developed by the cast as they got to know each other. Sex, sex, sex. Too bad the rest of the film didn't live up to the promise of all the sex. As a film, not that great a followup to Hedwig and the Angry Inch. As a memorable experiment though, it succeeds.
