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

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.

"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.
