The Crash Bash
As faithful readers know, I thought Crash deserved the Oscar for Best Picture. Although I thought Brokeback Mountain was a better-than-average movie, I did not think it a great movie. My views have led to some arguments with friends, a flavor of which is in some of the comments to my posts on Brokeback and on the Oscars, but most of which have been by private emails. Although I don't always agree with Roger Ebert about movies, he is the reviewer whose tastes coincide most closely with mine. So, I was delighted to find this article by Ebert about the continuing controversy. I can only say, I agree completely with what he wrote and wish I had the talent to write as cogently. But then that's why he's a famous movie reviewer and I'm just a crockhead.
