This is the second film from the director of Hedwig and The Angry Inch, a film that, after viewing Shortbus, I really want to see.
So when Mitchell had his actors have real sex he introduced all kinds of complications that I feel were noticeable in the movie - sometimes it seemed people were concentrating on having the sex for the camera so it didn't seem quite as believable as if it were the real deal.
