"Brokeback Mountain" & the Future of Hollywood

Well, if history is any indication; the critical acclaim of the film "Brokeback Mountain" could usher in a new era in Hollywood.

NO, not a turn towards producing more meaningful films that aim to challenge the audiences understanding of society, by questioning the most cherished symbols and deeply rooted sterotypes, which serve to both define and divide it; all in an effort to promote a message of tolerance, acceptance and understanding.

Are you kidding me? Hollywood only cares about its profits. Good news for fans of the Western. Get ready for more flicks with scruffy dudes in tight pants, kissing.

Hmmm, I wonder... if this helps resurrect the "Western" Genre then couldn't it also be used as a template to help the long suffering "Martial Arts" genre as well. Hey! Maybe, we'll get that long awaited Steven Segal/Jean Claude Van Damme "Buddy" movie afterall!
