Director John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch
) has made one of the very few films where the depiction of sexuality is central to character. Its not an erotic movie, but one about the way people interact sexually, with all the comedy and embarrassment that comes with that. The cast of unknowns is great, and they helped create their own characters, lending an odd naturalism to things like a man singing The Star Spangled Banner into another mans anus. Really, what more needs to be said?
