Reaching to Make a Point

I'm as big a fan as any of arthouse sex flicks, but I think sometimes the people producing it are a little untethered from the world in which most of us live.

John Cameron Mitchell has made a movie about sex purporting to be a slap in the face to our current President:

"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.
"If you can't do elections you might as well do erections," he said.

If I had a penny for every time...
