A little too explicit for my tastes, but some of the more inventive segments about finding oneself allow the film to rise above the controversy that has surrounded its more graphic scenes. Still, not a film I would watch again...

A great little movie. Yes, it's controversial, but it's also deep, meaningful and features some great performances. Highly recommended. It just might change the way you look at relationships, people and life itself. "Shotbus" is a gem, watch it!

A beautiful film about finding yourself and connecting with another human being, how you won't be right until you just know you are. Its insane how honest James Cameron Mitchell has been in creating this work. Yes, graphic and controversial, it is still a wonderful piece of cinematic art.

An honest, tender and funny look at voyeurism, sexual gratification and discovering new things about oneself; graphic sex scenes (both hetero and homosexual) neither add ot subtract from its charm, but they're certainly a conversation piece; underwritten characters are its major flaw. Final Grade: B

This movie was much better than the reviews led me to believe. Once you get over watching people have sex, you find that John Cameron Mitchell has made a highly comedic film about the human desire to connect with one another; sex is only the theme.
