Finally, REAL relationships.....,
This review is from: Shortbus [DVD]  (DVD)
This film is awesome, and touches you because it is real, funny heartbreaking and approaches its admitadely not-for-the-fainthearted story with a style that has been missing from anything I have ever seen, and having no life I watch a lot of movies.
The characters are depicted as real people, not glorified superhumans like is typical in more mainstream cinema, and the use of sex has really been overplayed. Most of what you see you can identified with becuase it, and the whole movie, just feels real. Sex is treated not just as a psysical pleasure, but as a pysical response to emotional and mental requirements, needs, wants. This film is deep, absorbing and brilliant.
This film should be watched by everyone. And it is not a 'gay' movie, a lot of the movie follows straight character, so no excuses people, just watch it
Gutted the release date has been put back.
