Overdue Review

Ah finally watched Brokeback Mountain -- very attentively. It's well-made: exceptional acting, smooth cinematography, fluent controversy in de story -- it's a lot more than de 'butt' of 'happy' jokes; it's influential.

1. Heath is BRAVE. Jake is BRAVE. (Too much to write about their talent.)
2. Hathaway's no longer typecast.
3. Michelle (Alma) is a young Meryl -- talented, effortless.
4. They've all forever changed de homo kinda image, impactin' pop culture.

What does de movie seek to achieve (motive, objective, agenda)? Am not certain. It's a heavyweight though.

Melody said...

Me alone watched it -- not to mention how graphic it is (tho based on a woman's book depictin' de wives' sufferin').

I thought it was a great movie..very sad in a lot of parts.
Not as graphic as critics made out though

Melody said...

But, Kami, de tent scene (spittin' in his palm) -- that scene kinda earned it de very graphic label.

Not gonna watch it though, and I think all the guys will agree with me on this one.
