Rough and Tumble Cowboys

Brokeback Mountain premiered at the Venice film festival this week. There are a few very readable links attached to main article. My favorite excerpt:

The "Day After Tomorrow" pinup says that kissing a boy -- in this case Aussie hunk Heath Ledger -- in "Brokeback Mountain" almost led to a broken nose.

"He grabs me and he slams me up against the wall and kisses me, and then I grab him and I slam him up against the wall and I kiss him," he said recently, adding that the love scenes were the most violent he'd ever done.

I, uh, may be completely unavailable throughout the month of December.

Variety has a review up. Requires registration.
