    My girlfriend and I went to see the film "Brokeback Mountain" last night, and it completely blew us away. It's about a relationship between two young guys, who are cowboys, who fall in love,but who are not able to deal with their mutual love over the years. Very intense and incredibly sad.

    IT sounds heart breaking. I was just reading the reviews .It seems that Heath Ledger may have just won himself an oscar nomination. I hope to see it myself.

    Thanks a million, Lex. Just found the short story and started reading it. It is going to end sadly, that much is clear already. Sigh. Over here in Europe the film is being handled as one of the best outtakes on being oppressed in the US. Of course, right now it is hard to find anyone in Europe who has anything good to say about US culture. Getting very tired of being damned by association.
    Hope the film comes out on DVD soon - don't want to wait until March to see it - which willl be the start date over here. How do the women come out in it? Are they just necessary stage accessories or a real part of the story?

    The guys the create Southpark must be having a field day. The predicted 5 years ago that independent films would be about "gay cowboys sitting around a campfire, eating pudding."

    I saw this movie, and it would have been more interesting if they had ate some pudding.

    Big yawn.

    Which reminds me of the story that Elvis' mother was asked whether she objected to him being called Elvis the Pelvis, and she replied that she was just glad she hadn't named him Enus. :)

    Yeah, you New Yorkers always get the good films first! :(

    My bf and I have a date to see it as soon as it opens in Seattle.

    Finally, a gay film with real actors, a real director, real production values, and an interesting and realistic plot! Unlike that crap they pass of at the gay film festivals... I can't wait!

    Oh, p.s. - welcome back, we missed you! :cool:

    Interesting note about the movie:

    The guys were filiming a kissing scene and Michelle Williams (plays Ennis' wife) stopped them and told them she wasn't feeling their kissing. She told Jake Gyllenhal that he need to kiss Heath Leadger like he was trying to steal her husband. Further, she asked them to walk around the set and randomly make out in order to surprise her and to help her keep the simmering anger and resentment required of her character. The guys agreed.

    I am MORE than impressed by these guys. Will Smith had the opportunity to truly play a gay love interest in "Sex Degrees of Separation" and was counseled by many, including Denzel Washington, to NOT kiss another man onscreen for fear that it could ruin his career. Smith admitted a few years ago that he regretted not doing it, saying that a true actor gets totally into his role, especially given all the money they are paid and that it wouod have been a wonderful growth oppotunity for him.

    I agree with you Lex. Black/African-American actors tend to welcome playing crack heads, and prostitutes more readily than they do playing hardcore homosexuals. Some people might say, that actors like Isiah Washington have managed to play significant (Spike Lee's Get on The Bus) gay roles without it negatively impacting their careers. But I really have not seen layered intimacy, romance, studied interioirty in most Black/African-American actors portrayal-(everything is basically a limp wrist, and a Sissy snap). At any rate, I will be seeing the movie Friday evening, and hope it will be as good as people have made it out to be.

    Peace
