An emotional journey on the Shortbus

Just two days after I proclaimed Pan's Labyrinth as my possible film of the year, along comes Shortbus. I was expecting a cute and frivolous movie with some ok acting and lots of sex. What I got was a very honest, emotional, raw and deep film that I found profoundly affecting. The only things I was right about was the ok acting and the sex.

I can't really write a proper entry about it because it honestly bowled me over. I even got a little bit tearful at the end. I identified so much with some of the people and situations it was uncanny. It also made me laugh very hard indeed. It's a truly great film and I urge everyone to see it.
