Personal Quote:

One of the jobs of art is to inspire discussion, and Brokeback Mountain certainly has done that. It's like a window and a mirror. You're looking through a window at lives you may or may not have experienced. But it's a mirror in the sense we've all felt lonely; we're all, at one time or another, looking for and hoping for love.

Frequently works with Larry McMurtry on screenplays, and in two cases, novels: Pretty Boy Floyd, and Zeke and Ned. Many of their screenplays are based on McMurtry's novels.
