Brokeback Mountain

So we finally saw Brokeback Mountain last night on DVD via Netflix.

Here's the thing: It's not that great a film.

Yeah, yeah- put aside the social significance (admittedly substantial and serious) of a mainstream, oscar-winning film about a gay love affair.

That aside, not a great film.

Beautiful scenery, good cinematography, decent performances, but...not a great film.

Really. Wholly over-rated. Don't kick yourself if you miss it.
