I saw Ang Lee‘s movie yesterday, expecting a lot and… was bored! Sorry, Marie-France.
Brokeback Mountain didn’t live up to what I had heard about the movie. It took me about half an hour to get into the movie, but I never found it really interesting. I’ll keep the scenes when Ennis’s wife discovers about her husband’s homosexuality, the outstanding scene of the Thanksgiving dinner when Jack stands up against his father-in-law, and Ennis’s visit to Jack’s parents at the end of the movie. To me, these were the most interesting themes in the movie, and I would like to have seen them developped.
I read in the credits that the movie was based on a short story by Annie Proulx, a short story that made for a looooong movie!
