We gave it a B+

You can go ahead and get your giggles out now because, yes, Shortbus is that movie. Directed by Hedwig and the Angry Inch‘s John Cameron Mitchell, the actors here have actual, frequent, and explicit sex. Yet for all the body parts on display, this tale of love, orgies, and New York City is most effectively raw when exposing the loneliness of people who want desperately to connect.
EXTRAS Tons, including a delightfully crude commentary (you’ll be using the word cahooha for a week) and a ”How to Shoot Sex” primer. If that’s your thing.
