Our Love

Were any of you lucky enough to see "Brokeback Mountain" premiere last night in NY, LA, and San Francisco? It hits
23 other US cities next Friday the 16th. I'm down here in sunny Argentina, but my heart is on screen with Heath and Jake, and behind the camera with my hero, Ang Lee, who's also brought us the amazing 'Ice Storm' and 'Wedding Banquet.'
I've longed my entire life to see a full-fledged cinematic love story between two men, not airbrushed, but searingly honest. It's also about intolerance, fear, and self-repression, which I did not escape myself, even being raised in the 1960s and 1970s. I just can't wait to see it.

Some reviewers comments:

"Brokeback Mountain is that rare thing, a big Hollywood weeper with a beautiful ache at its center. It's a modern-age Western that turns into a quietly revolutionary love story. " - EW

"Ang Lee's unmissable and unforgettable Brokeback Mountain hits you like a shot in the heart. It's a landmark film and a triumph for Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal. " - Rolling Stone

"This film is determined to involve us in the naturalness and even inevitability of its epic, complicated love story." - LA Times

"Mr. Ledger magically and mysteriously disappears beneath the skin of his lean, sinewy character. It is a great screen performance, as good as the best of Marlon Brando and Sean Penn. " - New York Times

"Brokeback Mountain is a tragedy because these men have found something that many people, of whatever sexual persuasion, never find - true love. And they can't do anything about it. " - Christian Science Monitor
