Great quote from Ragan’s rant Brokeback:
Mr. Lee, why did you and your team make the casting choices that you did? In what ways do you think you are complicit in denying gay men opportunities to speak for and as themselves?
Overall he loved the film but I thought that swatch was great. Could Lee have made his film without casting established straight actors? Would it have been as successful? Would countless talk shows ask the annoying condescending OMG WHAT WAS IT LIKE battery of questions.
