The Duke Must Be Rolling in His Grave
Not that anyone should care a bit about what I think, but hey, since when does that stop a blogger? The movie Brokeback Mountain totally grosses me out and disgusts me. I knew the minute I read about it that it would receive lavish praise from the media and movie critics and no doubt many awards, starting with the Golden Globe. No doubt it will receive an Oscar. I could write a lot about how it is typical of our homoerotic obsessed culture. It is. But it just really makes me angry that they would take the genre of John Wayne, Gary Cooper, and all the rest and use it for this garbage. But, like a friend of mine in Montana recently said to me, "Out here the men are men and the sheep are nervous." So, I don’t know….maybe there is something to this. But I still can’t help thinking of what the Duke or Clint Eastwood would have done had they found these two bunking down on a cold night. Are there really a lot of gay cowboys? Have we been so wrong for so many years?
