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, the film manages to be a sincere, modest political venture that finds humor where you might least expect it. Mr. Mitchell, who previously wrote, directed and starred in "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," has said that he wanted to make a film in which sex wasn't negative or dreary. Unlike traditional hard-core features, in which the sexual encounters interrupt the story like a number in a 1930's Busby Berkeley musical, the carnal interludes in "Shortbus" are integrated into the narrative, much as the singing and dancing are in "Oklahoma!" This integration goes a long way to normalizing the sex, making it seem matter-of-fact, natural, and it also normalizes watching this kind of material in the kind of public space where you don't need a roll of quarters to keep the images flowing
