Warm-hearted and witty
on 3 June 2016
The German BluRay is 101 minutes, so I'd recommend that. Do you want me to repeat the plot just like everyone else? Won't!
For me the salient things are that Shortbus is humorous and it's very warm-hearted and user-friendly. It contains real sex ("influenced by the European use of it in mainstream cinema"). It is 90% gay and 10% straight. It's the story of Sofia (the commentaries keep telling us), a sex-therapist who is pre-orgasmic (i.e. has yet to have her first orgasm), but so much screen-time is given to James and his tear-filled eyes that he steals the show from her, which makes all the sudden happy-clappy endings doubly disjointed, and that's the only reason I can't give it 5 stars. Probably next time I watch it I'll pay more attention and upgrade it.
