Brokeback Mountain

I actually don't plan to go seeing it.
Not because of the "OMG GAY COWBOYS?! OFFENCE!". Rather because I saw the trailer just before King Kong, as well as the trailer for Sam Mendes' "JarHead" that's released a week later or before here. And that between these two Jake Gyllenhaal movies, the second looks more interesting to me. So not in the mood to watch a love story drama, be it about gay cowboys or the fancy het couple of the day. And the leads don't do it for me anyway.

This being told, I heard about this :

And rolled my eyes. Utah. What more can you say?

I may not be interested so much into the movie, but this shows why it's good that it exists. Apart from setting on fire the panties of slash fangirls all over the world, that is.

You know, I loved Utah...probably the only place in America I could imagine living. I just got put off by the fact that I would have to put up with nonsense like that. Mormons are lovely people, by and large, but oh GEEZ...

Yeah, it's kind of... I figure they can think what they want of homosexuality as long as they don't *prevent* people from even seeing a flick about guys who happen to have sex together, you know?

One article made me laugh because it interviewed a guy from the state the movie takes place in, who said "That's not what cowboys are about!". I guess he doesn't know that there's been stories of gay cowboys for much, much longer than this movie :P
And just because there's a movie won't make everyone think that all the cowboys are gay, no more than old movies full of gay innuendos made people think that cowboys were manly men.

(though when you think of it, when young and healthy men go away from civilization for weeks or months to lead some cattle throughout the plains, errm, it must get frustrating ;) )
