News Coverage 2011
« on: Jul 28, 2011, 02:29 AM »
From Roger Ebert's blog, five years later . . .
"A Great Love Story"

http://blogs.suntimes.com/foreignc/2011/07/brokeback-mountain.html

Interesting and thoughtful look back, interesting comments.
Maybe after all these years, instead of "Love is a Force of Nature"
the tagline should be "It Gets Me Everytime"

"Brokeback Mountain comes to symbolize love itself: A refuge from reality's cruelty."

Interesting article. Thanks, jackster.

Beautiful,interesting and moving article...Thanks for posting it,Jackster ¡  :c)
Ennis’s eyes gone bright with shock, mouth opening then closing again. “Love?” Ennis said finally, voice strangling in his throat.

Jack smiled sad. “Yeah, Ennis. Love.” Leaned forward and kissed Ennis’s temple, whispered, “What’d you think it was, all this time?”

"Though the film isn't a weepy, its final scene packs an emotional wallop that sums up how tragic it all ended. A dresser with two shirts: one Ennis's, the other Jack's; one embracing the other. A picture of the mountain: their haven and prison. No mountain out the window. A closet closed."

I think that's the most emotional final scene a movie ever had... and the saddest. Ennis closing the closet's door, where their love will always remain hidden. :_(

That last scene in the trailer got me right in the gut :_( Felt like I'd been punched there. Hard.
