Tore me to pieces. Saw it once and never again. Jul 21, PM Shelves: you-ll-need-a-cigarette I rarely go to the movies. Truly, the last movie I saw in a theater was Lincoln, in Brokeback Mountain? Never heard of it. Almost no one was in the theater that morning. My friend got popcorn, and I got comfortable. When Heath Ledger appeared on the giant screen, I got sassy, and my friend got uncomfortable. For I rarely go to the movies. For those of you who know me, you know I can get very outspoken about my leading men, and Heath has always made my heart beat faster.
I remember. What is this? I thought we were having a good time, up on that mountain together. I was surly after that. I felt. I also wish I had been one of the readers who had known the rather obscure short story when it came out in If I had read the story, before the movie, it would have been a completely different experience. Well, anyway, now I have. Please, do not mistake me. The nearly violent interactions between the men in the movie have their basis here, in the original story.
But, oh, it is a love story. It startled me, stunned me, aroused me, and saddened me.

Save Story Save this story for later. They were raised on small, poor ranches in opposite corners of the state, Jack Twist in Lightning Flat, up on the Montana border, Ennis del Mar from around Sage, near the Utah line, both high-school drop-out country boys with no prospects, brought up to hard work and privation, both rough-mannered, rough-spoken, inured to the stoic life. Ennis, reared by his older brother and sister after their parents drove off the only curve on Dead Horse Road, leaving them twenty-four dollars in cash and a two-mortgage ranch, applied at age fourteen for a hardship license that let him make the hour-long trip from the ranch to the high school. The pickup was old, no heater, one windshield wiper, and bad tires; when the transmission went, there was no money to fix it. He had wanted to be a sophomore, felt the word carried a kind of distinction, but the truck broke down short of it, pitching him directly into ranch work. That spring, hungry for any job, each had signed up with Farm and Ranch Employment—they came together on paper as herder and camp tender for the same sheep operation north of Signal.
The film was frequently referred to in the media as the "gay cowboy movie", but a number of reviewers noted that both Jack and Ennis were bisexual. I think the whole point was that it was two souls that fell in love with each other. Roger Ebert concluded that both characters were gay, but doubted it themselves: "Jack is able to accept a little more willingly that he is inescapably gay. Gyllenhaal has stated that he is extremely proud of the film and his role, regardless of what the reactions would be. Lee found the first scene difficult to film and has stated he has great respect for the two main actors for their "courage". American cowboys—of all people—have no business falling in love with each other. Practical and conservative types of a rough and ready manhood are by no means ready for man-love.
