Yeah About That

I just realized my stated aversion to Brokeback Mountain might be taken as homophobic.

Not the reason at all.

I've not seen anything from Ang Lee that I've liked so far.  So I'm not going out of my way to see any more of his work.

I've read about the plot.  What I've read fails to make a case that redeems the main character's decisions with regards to how they treat their families.

At the core it's two people who are cheating on their spouses with each other.  Yes, they're old flames; but if that relationship was paramount then they should not have taken vows.  I don't think I'd want to see this film with a hetro couple.

The basic plot sounds familiar enough that I'm reasonably certain it's been done from a hetro perspective.
