My friend recommended this movie to me in disgust. In fact, she didn't recommend it to me. It was more of a diplomatic way of saying "There's this *disturbing* film called Shortbus"--- and that she felt nauseating during the group orgy scene.
Take a look at the picture above and you'd know that this isn't your average friday night movie. Heterosexual, Bisexual, Homosexual, Transexual, Sexual, Sexual, Sexual...definitely sexually diverse.
An explicit film with a gutsy opening scene of sadism, auto-fellatio and 100% real sex scenes. I was pretty shocked seeing all that 5minutes into the movie. but the producer was incredibly intelligent for exhibiting the most intimate scenes at the very beginning of the movie, why? because viewers get desensitised. The most important aspects of a movie, book, article, or even a situation is the beginning and the end.
I can assure you that this movie started with a BOOM and ended with a BAM.
Another thing, the cinematography was incredible.
If you dig deeper and seep beyond the fornication you'd see a flip side to this film, I loved how realistic it was, unlike major hollywood flicks...ongoing predictable plotline. Instead of the movie driving you, you were driving the movie because you'd know exactly what would happen.
Not with Shortbus, because Shortbus will drive you.
This film plucks at the core issues lying within every individual, whether it's personal, relationship, or social issues ...no matter how different you may think you are to the person across the road from you, they'd most likely to be experiencing , experienced or will soon to cross paths with the very emotional rollercoaster you're encounting.
Before I watched Shortbus, i read a summary and was almost certain it'll be a film that's something short of being borderline pornographic. I was surprised to find so much more. Although I haven't seen anything this explicit but this is definitely the "dark" film that touch basis with reality. I guess people were so afraid of having reality reflected at them so they banned this movie in several countries.
Not recommended for the faint hearted.
"Watch it if you can handle it, and if you can't... prehaps you should ask yourself why."
If you've never heard of this movie and just saw the picture above I bet your reaction was "WTF"
In fact, WTF was exactly my reaction to this film.
WHAT. THE. F***.
Ok, the movie in a nutshell.... a famous surgeon after retirement attempted to create a rottweiler centipede but failed, the poor dogs died. Instead, he captured two girls and a japanese guy so he could perform the "mouth-to-rectum" procedure (sewing the mouth the the anus) and turn them into a "human centipede" with a single linked digestive system. To the surgeon, this was considered as his beloved "pet"
Are you "wtf-ing" yet?
Possibly one of the worst movie i've ever seen. not because of the mouth to anus plot... that's actually quite bizzare and would intentionally grab a lot of curious viewers.
The actors for a starter were bleak. they were terrible.
The dialogue was empty and stupid
The movie was slow as hell and it wasn't "flowing" logically
The first 42mins of the film consists of poor use of dialogue and girls screaming.
a little over half way you will get to see some action. It's a little bit graphic, I was expecting more scene on the actual procedure, which was a let down.... nonetheless not recommended for the squirmish.
I'm not sure whether I should say "fortunately" or "unfortunately" there will be a sequel.
The Human Centipede 2 is to be released in 2011, according to the maker, it will be the most disturbingly sick movie ... ever.
This movie was so shit, i'm not even gona bother rating.
