Wondering why times are missing?

Shortbus

John Cameron Mitchell, writer/director/star of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, follows up that edgy cult hit with--what else?--hardcore sex. This adult drama follows a group of New Yorkers who converge on an underground lounge infamous for its blend of art, politics, music and hedonism. The vaguely Magnolia-ish story finds various connections among its panoply of unhappy characters. Mitchell injects some welcome humor into the dialogue, but it's the real (entirely unsimulated) sex acts that will have tongues wagging on this one. 101 minutes Unrated.
