Brokeback Mountain

When other people write things better than you do should you not write about them? Should you give up altogether or should you plough on, regardless? And if this is your only dilemma very late on a Saturday night then should you worry about it at all and shouldn’t you really go to bed?

This is the position I find myself in after having returned from seeing Brokeback Mountain. Tom wrote about it very well yesterday and, let’s face it, approximately half the known world has an opinion on it (that’s a scientific fact, honestly it is).

Suffice to say that it’s a marvelous film and you should go and see it at once.
