Well, Ain't That A Poke In The Ass

Proulx slams academy and `Crash`:

LOS ANGELES, CA, United States (UPI)

The author of the story that was adapted into the film, 'Brokeback Mountain,' has trashed the Oscars and best film winner, 'Crash.'

In Britain`s Guardian, Annie Proulx referred to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voters as 'conservative heffalumps' and referred to 'Crash' as 'Trash,' the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.

'We should have known conservative heffalump academy voters would have rather different ideas of what was stirring contemporary culture,' Proulx wrote. 'Roughly 6,000 film industry voters, most in the Los Angeles area, many living cloistered lives behind wrought-iron gates or in deluxe rest-homes, out of touch not only with the shifting larger culture and the yeasty ferment that is America these days, but also out of touch with their own segregated city, decide which films are good.
Yeah right. Tha's funny. I don't care who ya' are. Tha's funny.
Did you happen to take into consideration that maybe the movie sucked?
Far be it for 'Hollywood' to all of a sudden turn conservative.


Also:
"yeasty ferment"? Where the fuck did she come up with that one?

did she SEE Crash??
There is something more morally compelling in 2006 about 1800s cowboys who fall in love with each other than the concept of humans isolating themselves to the point of moral degredation and needing to crash into others to realign with anything organic????
She is a fermenting culture and should be tossed with the rest of the unused hot dog buns.

She probably didn't see it. It was probably 'below' her.
