Taiwanese director Ang Lee lends his aesthetic talents to Brokeback Mountain. Having chosen Lee as the director was another good “move” by Hollywood to legitimize the diversity of the film. I couldn’t even pay attention to five minutes of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Brokeback Mountain is driven by it’s gayness. Otherwise the film would be considered a fairly boring love story.
After watching the film, one question remains: Were the cowboys really gay? Of course they threw darts back and forth but they enjoyed some ladies. Jack Twist was obviously really gay as he was the receiver. Ennis del Mar had himself a couple of ladies. Throughout Brokeback Mountain he was fighting his gayness. I don’t think he won. Both of the cowboys were really bisexual.
The truth is Brokeback Mountain is one of the better Hollywood movies to out in the past couple of years. The piece of trash Crash beat Brokeback Mountain for Best Picture at the 78th Academy Awards. Both films are cultural Marxist propaganda set on social deconstruction of America (which for the most part has already been achieved). Brokeback Mountain at least was a decent film. Crash was just another lame and unrealistic look at “multicultural” America. Director Paul Haggis is in dire need of having someone excrement on the top of his shiny evil head.
I decided to rewatch Brokeback Mountain after the recent death of Heath Ledger. I wonder if he will be immortalized like James Dean. It makes me wonder if Hollywood kills it’s stars to guarantee never ending franchises. I know Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, and James Dean have made them a hefty sum. Soon you will see gay cowboy Heath Ledger action figures. What else would you expect from Hollywood?
