Larry H. Miller On Brokeback Ban: Talk To My Fists

Brokeback Mountain is still riding high in the saddle since its Golden Globes triumph, but don't expect the accolades to sway Larry H. Miller, the Utah Jazz and movie theater chain owner who caused an international controversy for pulling the movie at the very last minute from his multiplex, no explanation offered. Towleroad notes that when a radio reporter approached him for a comment as he was entering a hotel ballroom to deliver a speech at the (irony alert) local NAACP's annual Martin Luther King luncheon, a pissy Miller slapped the microphone away, saying "I said everything I had to say when I pulled the movie. Okay? Anything else you want to know?" The entire exchange was caught on video. Meanwhile, it's business at usual at Miller's Sandy Megaplex theater, where you can catch six screenings a day of a ball-gagged Jay Hernandez exploring the outer recesses of his pain threshold in Hostel.
