while i was in manhattan last week amy and i went and saw 'shortbus', john cameron mitchell's (hedwig and the angry inch) most recent film.

i really liked it; he didn't use actors for it, he found people from the city and asked them to be in the film, and the result was really good. the characters feel genuine and believable and REAL.

there is a lot of graphic sex in the movie (the version i saw was unrated) but it doesn't feel gratuitous or exploitative; it's integral to the plot and serves a purpose.

i won't give away any of the plot, but one of the strongest feelings it elicited in me was loneliness, if you've seen it, what did it make you feel? (if you haven't seen it, go if you get the chance).
