Annie Proulx - Comments and Message Board

Well, gee, Annie, when my wife and I first saw Crash last summer ? I told her this is the movie that will and should win the Oscar. Don Cheadle's role alone was worth the whole movie. But then you condemn Crash as "trash" and complain that next year we will be on the lookout for movies with adulterers with big A's -- what do you think Brokeback Mountain is all about but adultery? Your story reminds me of The Bridges of Madison County and The English Patient, two wretched films that both glorified adultery. Like them, your story appears to suggest that the real tragedy is that the adulterers were not able to be fully satisfied in their adultery -- all three films seem to hold marriage in contempt.
