'Shortbus' sex bonanza a slap to Bush, Cannes director says

May 20 4:24 PM US/Eastern

 

 

A US film featuring actors performing real sex is a "call to arms" against President George W. Bush, the director told journalists at the Cannes film festival.

 

"Shortbus," an explicit, largely improvised arthouse flick that includes a rendition of the American national anthem during a gay sex scene, is a direct provocation, director John Cameron Mitchell admitted.

 

 

 

"It's a little bit of a cri de coeur to us, a little bit of a call to arms" against the prevailing conservatism, he told a media conference, adding that his country was living in "the era of Bush, which is about clamping down, being scared."

 

The 43-year-old, whose previous work was "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," about a transsexual rock singer, said the film was his own small act of defiance against Bush.

The irony of it all is that Dubya's entire life was sex, drugs and (maybe) rock'n'roll until he got "born again" just in time to run for public office. I doubt he gives a flying fuck. There's almost nothing I like about the guy, but I have to say that I don't think he's personally homophobic or racist (although on the homophobia I think there are some issues he hasn't thought through clearly, something he may not be capable of doing). The film undoubtedly will be a slap at Bush's famous "base," though -- they get the creepy-crawlies just thinking about the possibility that someone, somewhere, is having sex and enjoying it without guilt!!!
