Storyline

On The Bus' original intention was to be a fun-loving, rambunctious, half-hour Internet program about a group of young, gay men on a bus trip from Los Angeles to Burning Man, a festival of radical self expression in the Nevada desert. However, after returning from a week of shooting, stereotypes had fallen apart, and it became clear that this story had far more to tell than a half hour internet show could lend. Almost immediately On The Bus challenges the viewer with the notion that "Even in absolute freedom, some things are still sacred." - Damon Intrabartolo (cast member #6) . It is here that Director Dustin Lance Black begins this story. Lance is hired by The Digital Entertainment Network (DEN) to produce, direct and participate in an Internet reality show with an all gay cast. He then hires Billy Kaufman as co-producer and cast member number two. Charles Kinsley, a gorgeous actor/waiter, Jason Webb, porn star Dean O'Conner, and Jimmy Sjodin, a Swedish Olympic diver soon follow. ... Written by Anonymous

I actually enjoyed this--I had scene it on a recommendation list on Amazon.com, but I ignored it for years.

After Black's inspiring Oscar win, I thought I would check it out and I was pleasantly surprised.

I starts off well and keeps you thoroughly interested as the whole thing unfolds. You empathize with every one of these guys and you want to know more...even when the film is finished, you have more questions--I would love to hear about these guys now and what's going on in their lives.

That's the work of a good documentary.
