to suggest there was any agenda to brokeback mountain other than a love story is to have clearly never seen it

I guess 'Philadelphia' was a movie about a law firm.

No, it was about workplace discrimination against HIV+ patients 20 years ago.

Right. And Brokeback Mountain was just a love story? There was no agenda whatever in choosing two denizens of one of the most macho professions as the subjects? I seem to recall several commentators that liked the movie suggesting that there was such an agenda and applauding this.

Why say 'agenda' and not 'angle'? Its just a story. Why does there have to be ulterior motives?

But I guess gay characters= ______agenda. Gay people exist, thus their inclusion in movies and tv shows, etc (didn't used to be included, was that an agenda?). That equals some sort of agenda?
