Get Back on the Shortbus, Baby

Today is the damn overdue day -- John Cameron Mitchell's sexual fantasia Shortbus from 2006 is today finally on blu-ray! And Amazon has it on sale right now too -- pick up your copy right here. I haven't seen this movie in full in awhile (I have watched the gay sex scenes out of context though because hot obviously) and I am deeply curious to see how it plays here 16 years (!!!) on. Will it feel like a time capsule of that moment? Or was it so prescient about the queer world ahead it's time-traveled up alongside us? Anybody watched it recently? I suppose I will find out myself when my copy arrives... in two weeks? Ugh I really should have pre-ordered, dammit.

I rewatched it this summer, and I think it held up. Can't wait for my pre-order to finally arrive!
