This isn't an exploit into pornographic ideals, but a movie with genuine ideas that are completely freed from political correctness.

Shortbus is not, above all, 'dirty.' What it is, in fact, is a nice movie, one of the nicest to come down the pike since March of the Penguins.

Shortbus flips through varying moods with overall success, fleshing out the characters who show flesh.

Incredibly sexy without being titilating, this is a very well crafted flick that deserves a bigger audience than it will inevitably receive.

a project that has brains as well as bravado. It's also very funny, which helps to diffuse much of the nervousness that its graphic sex scenes might inspire in viewers. ...an imaginative, involving and ultimately touching story.

The hallmarks of a true collaboration between the director and his actors are everywhere, and their performances are what raise the film above any of its shortcomings.

If you want to explore the ideas of love and emotional permeability while seeing a narratively complex world of sexual self-exploration to which few are privy, then this is the movie for you. Otherwise, run for your life.

Mitchell worked with his cast to develop the various stories and the improvisatory effort may not have resulted in a Mike Leigh sort of drama but it has yielded wondrous moments. The cast is very good with the best performances coming from Lee as Sofia (w

Cinema em Cena

Um raro exemplo de produção norte-americana que encara o sexo com maturidade, o filme é um estudo de personagens com sucesso apenas moderado, já que não consegue desenvolver todas as subtramas com o mesmo cuidado ou interesse.

Despite the movie's matter-of-fact approach to (and depiction of) graphic acts, the point isn't the sex, it's the genuine emotion generated by the actors, who helped develop their roles with Mitchell.
