Gay cowboys? Whoo-eee!

Sorry if I’m behind the curve on this whole Brokeback Mountain thing, but it just got to a theatre near me.

I liked it, I suppose, but I kept thinking as I watched it that it would make a better novel. Weird, ‘cus it was based on a short story. How, then, did Larry McMurtry make it “read” like there was too much to fit into the movie version?

It wasn’t structured like a screenplay. Not that I’m a stickler for structure, but it ambled. And while I liked the story, I didn’t like the way it unfolded. Guess I should get my hands on the short story.

Oh, plus, big time misleading ad campaign. They weren’t cowboys, they were shepherds! Seems I’m not the only one to notice.
