Brokeback Mountain

Recommended Posts

Yo Keith, I caught it last night and it was a pretty good movie. The acting alone makes the movie a must see. Also the cinematography is beyond awesome, making Big Sky country look better then it ever has before. I won't get into the story too much for fear of giving away most of the plot, but if someone is worried it is going to be a man/man fuckfest don't worry. Its more implied then anything else and you do get to see two very nice racks belonging to the leading actresses.

That being said, it is about two friends who find love with each other and it is an extremely tragic story. I recommend it to folks who can look past the "gayness" of it and see it as a good story worth telling. So about half the folks in this thread are excluded.

And btw, as a gay man I just have to say if I get called a fudgepacker one more time, I'm going to open up a can of freefly whoopass ;)

Oh, I dunno maybe 'cause I'm a fag and I think movies depicting men falling in love are kinda neat :ph34r:



Ok that's just fucking offensive .... :ph34r::ph34r:

Thanks for the review Aaron. I've read the short story so I know what you mean about it not being a fuckfest, and being tragic - I'm curious how they depict that part. I'm going to see it Friday. I'll post my thoughts then. This movie is getting rave reviews and just got 7 Golden Globe nods.

What's offensive? That I'm a fag, the idea of two men falling in love or the fact you're not one of them? :P;):ph34r:



Well Keith you're just pissy because you can't have me. :ph34r:

Why is that term used only for gay men anyway??? Judging from many threads on here, there seem to be a lot of hetero men who like to have anal sex with women, so wouldn't that term be just as apt for them too??? Inquiring minds want to know...

Oh, and I look forward to seeing the movie too...

:S There used to be this guy at work who apparently worked out every day. After lunch I would occasionally be lucky enough to enter the elevator after him. The smell of his sweat mixed with his cologne would make me weak at the knees. That's why.

Well I saw Brokeback Mountain tonight. The movie followed the short story almost verbatim, although a couple of minor scenes were left out.

Aaron was correct; the intimacy between Ennis and Jake was mostly left to the imagination and for the overtly heterosexual there were gratuitous boobie scenes and heterosexual sex scenes to dilute the homosexual theme of the movie.

Given the fact it took me about an hour to read the original story and the fact the movie was over two hours in length, I would have liked the main characters, the relationship between them, and the anguish their families went through to have been developed a bit more. The original story skirted an important message I believe was lost in this film; When we lie to ourselves about whom we are we not only hurt ourselves, we also hurt innocents we unintentionally build our lies, our attempts to conform to societal standards, around. It also skirted the intolerance our society has for those we deem different; The tragedy of ignorance should have been allotted more than the 30 seconds of screen time director Ang Lee allotted.

That being said, I thought Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger did a superb job of depicting the sacrifices taken and the prices paid when two men have to hide their deep love for one and other in backwards rural America. It’s definitely a film worth seeing.

Edited to add: Are Aaron and I the only ones who are going to admit we saw this movie????
