“But who cares, it’s an art film!”

Right. The evidence that it’s going to be some sort of extra-special failure if the movie doesn’t perform like a mainstream blockbuster strikes me as tenuous at best. The writer is Annie Proulx, not Nora Ephron, for crying out loud.

Quite frankly, while I think Brokeback will certainly offer some “measure” as to gay acceptance in the U.S., the film seems to be more about masculinity than anything else. And offering a really non-stereotypical representation of the mythic “cowboy” isn’t going to win at the box office. Period. But who cares, it’s an art film!
