I realize everyone interested had seemingly seen "Shortbus" before today but I'm still trying to get my head around it.

It's one of few films that I really can't express my thoughts on. I'm not really sure I like the movie (mainly because of the acting and the fact that the "story" doesn't do a lot for me). But Mitchell crafts it with such brilliance that it's impossible to not admire the effort tremendously. This is a man who actually treats cinema like an art form which is so wonderful to see these days. And that final scene is utterly brilliant.

Without a doubt one of the most fascinating and memorable efforts of the year.
