The subject of "Brokeback Mountain" is just the fact that two cowboys happen to be gay. That is really the issue, and the only thing anyone discussed. "Crash" was better as a film, both written and acted.
But your point on "Capote" is really the most striking point to the issue. "Capote," which in my mind is one of the top five acting performances of all time, is simply brillant. I think it should have been best picture, and it was a story about a gay man's fascination with a killer. But, that is not the image that "Gay America" wants, a self-deprecating man who falls for a madman. No, no. They want cowboys to be gay, to show that anyone can be gay. That is an agenda... The problem is, the film just wasn't that good.
