Critics: That was quick

… if you’re talking true quality, anyway. Three of the more legitimate critics organizations have named “Brokeback Mountain” the best picture of 2005. Not that that means we’re going to be spared two-and-a-half months of the most desperate, unseemly campaigning to convince everybody that a gay cowboy movie just can’t be the best that cinema could do this year. But with the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, the New York Film Critics Circle and the Boston Society of Film Critics all anointing Ang Lee’s deeply touching tale tops, any other entries will just be running to win popularity contests, not any claim to artistic superiority.
