Backbone on Brokeback Mountain.

Gene Schalit has dared to not call Brokeback Mountain the greatest film of all time let alone this year. In fact he characterized one of the gay lover stars as a stalker.

Yahoo News reports:
For the most part, the critics agree that Brokeback Mountain is one of the year's most commendable films.

Then there's Gene Shalit's point of view.

Michael Medved once noted how a critic friend of his hated The Last Temptation of Christ but knew to pan the movie would have been the death of his career. Same situation here, I wonder how many of those critics truly believe their reviews? Bravo to Gene Schalit for standing against that pressure! Anyway he is set.

See you in a couple of weeks!
