LHM May Be In Over His Head
Larry H. Miller has kept quiet about his decision to cancell "Brokeback Mountain". But his actions today spoke volumes. KSLTV's 10pm newscast showed video of Miller's reaction to a KSL radio question on the subject. Miller's face went taught as he violently grabbed the microphone and advanced toward the reporter declaring he had nothing to say. The KSL camera self- censored and drifted away as stunned bystanders looked- well- stunned. (and embarrased) KSL also reported that 60% of Utahn's agreed with Miller's decision. But those numbers don't mean a whole lot. I think that's the number he'd pull for cancelling any rated R movie. But he doesn't cancel rated R movies. He doesn't even cancel gay movies. Just this gay movie, giving the international press yet another opportunity to mischaracterize and mock Utah and Mormons. He's rich, but that's about it.
