Bareback Mountain

I was passing along a side street when I chanced on this tourism agency which I think caters to a certain type of clientele. They not only offer the "Gertrude Stein Tour to France", but also the "Brokeback Mountain Experience".

Tent included.



Incidentally, you know the last actor to win the supporting Oscar posthumously? It was Australian Peter Finch for that iconic performance in "Network" -- "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not taking it anymore!".

I think he'll be joined in the ranks of the Oscar-possessors by his fellow Aussie up in heaven, Heath Ledger.

  • Ah, Finch was nominated before he died though. He died after the ballots came in to vote him the award! Believe it or not, some voters are queasy about noming someone who you know is gone, which may work against Ledger. It shouldn't, but it might.

    See--you two know too much to make commenting about movies fun for the amateurs.
