Movie Tuesday


Head over to Smitty-B and join director John Cameron Mitchell (the “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” guy) for a screening of his 2006 film “Shortbus” — Q & A to follow.  This is what The New York Times had to say.

As utopian visions go, it doesn’t get much better than “Shortbus,” a film in which all you need is love — and sex, lots and lots of mutually, sometimes collectively, pleasurable sex. John Cameron Mitchell wrote and directed, though orchestrated might be the better word for a carnivalesque romp in which men and women engage in sex in a multitude of creative combinations. An ode to the joy and sweet release of sex…

What could I possibly add to that?

(Update: I guess I do have to add something.  According to one commenter Mr. Mitchell will not attend this screening.  The press release from Brown indicated that he would.)

Tuesday, 7:30pm, Room 106, Smith-Buonanno Hall, Meeting Street (east of Brown Street), Brown University

    that’s what the facebook invite says, too. doggone it, my day is totally boring and seeing hunky john cameron mitchell* would have made it so much better…. oh well.

  3. Shortbus is indeed being screened tomorrow at 7:30 but Director Cameron Mitchell won’t be there. He’s coming to town on Tuesday, December 2 for a screening of another one of his films, Hedwig and the Angry Inch. That event’s at the RISD Auditorium (7 Canal Street) at 7PM next Tuesday. []

  4. According to the Brown University Office of Media Relations it is open to the public. There is no mention of any charge for admission.
