I'll post this here instead of the Community Forum, so it doesn't get too ugly. I saw this movie in NYC over the weekend and it completely sucked. I was there visiting scem0, who went to the film with me and some friends. He fell asleep on my shoulder. Yes- it was that bad. This film was insulting, inept and hardly brave. I don't know about you, but I can't remember the last time I had sex with my jeans still mostly on. I'll quote scem0 too, because he says it all: "We went and saw Brokeback Mountain along with Lee's friend Philly and Philly's friend Michael, and we all agreed it was horrible. There was no passion, no nothing! Philly said it well when she said "there was more passion between the sheep than between the men". So true. It was very dry. I also think it misrepresented gay men. I think a lot of people might actually believe that a majority of gay men are fearful of their sexualities, f*** each other in the mountains without intimacy, and marry women to promote a heterosexual image. I don't want anything to do with that movie. I'm not f***ing in the mountains (unless I was camping, that might be sexy, and not because I want to hide anything) because I'm not gonna hide who I am. I'm not gonna use another man, or let another man use me. I'm not gonna deny any attractions I feel, and I'm certainly not gonna marry a woman to make other people think I'm straight! The love between the main characters was unconvincing. There was nothing there. I tried to cry during the movie and I couldn't. It was not sad at all. The movie had a lot of potential, but it was bad. Devoid of intimacy. The cinematography was pretty, that's about it, and it wasn't that pretty. I'd rather see something gritty than pretty anyways. I was hoping that this would be a movie that showed that gay men are the exact same as straight men. We all just want someone to love us. I was hoping it would make people who are on the border, undecided about how to treat homosexuality, support our side. This movie will not do that, I don't think. It's as if they got two animals to play the lead roles. They lacked intimacy, brains, and any connection."
