short bus!

this great movie about sex is something i have wanted to see for a long time... a movie that depicts sex (quite graphically) but isn't pornography. that may be a philosophical point, but it short bus has a complex, rewarding plot, lush character development, non-simulated sex, pointful animation and an up-to-the-second awareness of the complexities of modern sexuality. i really can't reccomend it enough, especially anyone for who wonders at how sexuality fits into our overall expression. while the trailer below is quite PG... don't watch the movie if you can't watch fucking or dark emotions or are homophobic (seriously on that last one... while there is straight sex in the movie it is overall much queerer). oh, and justin bond is AMAZING.

I heart this movie so much. I didn't really like hedwig a lot, but shortbus rocks my world. the final scene (the "parade" if you will) makes me feel all gooey inside. love love love. I wish I had something more constructive to add, I sound like a little fanboy cheerleader.

Yeah, we really enjoyed this movie as well, ditto on cz's comment about the ending scene. Personally one of the things I was really struck by (beyond the gorgeous camera work, actors, "plot," etc.) was the use of music throughout the movie. Once again, the last scene, but the soundtrack in general is rather topnotch as well.

got money? feed kids!
