One of my favourite blogs... is from someone with whom I rarely agree. And though I must admit I will have to wait until Brokeback Mountain makes it onto my local cableTV, I am suspecting this reaction will be mine (with lesser personal knowledge).
I was impressed that the line in the initial trailers that caused me to giggle ("I can't quit you") vanished quickly. But the remaining trailers just look vapid. And the best thing in a cowboy movie is the stampede - what does that leave shepherds!?
The vital comment in the cited review is, of course:
Beautiful scenery, thoughWell, yes, like another film we mentioned here a while ago.
