So that "Brokeback Mountain" adaptation I've been biting tongue depressors thinking about for what, God, two years now, plus? arrives in theaters soon. The v. good Annie Proulx short story from which it is adapted features a certain line of dialogue I hope is intact in the screenplay. During the male protagonists' first fuck, as the bottom cowboy is about to come he says, I'm serious, "Gun's goin' off [italics Proulx's]. This line is, I really mean this, the only genuinely hot thing I have read, only. And oh, I realize the chance of that making it into the film is slender as saffron threads, but a girl can hope, a girl can bite tongue depressors.
