Brokeback Mountain DVD

Finally watched Brokeback Mountain. I had'nt concieved that such intense passion could exist between men ... but hey, im straight, what do i know. 

Maybe some of our gay friends could let us know how true to life this actually is ...

Just stumbled on this looking for a pic of the mountain in Alberta where they filmed this... (Congrats on your courage and evolving open-mindedness = peering into the unknown.)

"True to life"?...
(Well first it's a movie!... Mr ET Alien says: "Wow, if I were to land at, let's say, Walmart... will everyone look like these gorgeous young men and women?")

I also just discovered that some of scenes where the two guys are looking at the mountain(s) were total digital composites.

So it seems the place exists only in the mind.

Guess what else exists only in the mind... (=the body, perhaps the "soul"?) That's right, the feelings and consequences of "being in love". (Have you been in love?) The fact that we've got a same-sex pairing here is a terrific vehicle revealing that "being in love" transends mere body-parts of a certain sex, age, relative cuteness, etc...

Soooo, I would argue that in human-terms, Brokeback Mountain is a not only a near perfect metaphor, it's the high-resolution definition of "true to life".

Thanks. Peace/Love/Courage. Truthdowser

& then there is the recent Snickers Superbowl commercial which the gays are now pissed of about - for some strange reason; proving that there is always some person or group with a thin skin that can be pissed off & offended about anything, including a joke.
