Man Gets Off The “Shortbus”

Man Gets Off The "Shortbus"

A media screening of John Cameron Mitchell‘s controversial “Shortbus” at the Toronto International Film Festival found itself losing a patron yesterday. Just a few minutes into the film, a man stormed out, declaring that the explicit homosexual threesome featuring a rendition of God Bless America was “going too far”, The Record reports. At a press conference later that day, Mitchell noted: “What pissed me off about it is that it was identified as porn without people having seen it.” [Peter Knegt]
