And the Cinematography is a "wow!": Brokeback Mountain

This evening I went to see Ang Lee's BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN.


It is good, as well as powerful.

Yes, I have heard and seen the satires...and the jokes...and the reviews of the film that focus on the homosexuality in the movie...and leave unexamined the heterosexual relationships in the film, as well as the question: "Which of the films relationships are more 'natural'...and why?"

One will have to see the movie to attempt an answer to this question.

The movie asks profound questions...or, perhaps, examines some of the subtler paradoxes of emotional intimacy, as well as the relationships that compete for our attention in adulthood: friendship, marriage, parenting.

As I experienced the movie, I felt sure it will become a classic.

It is a film for the ages.
