Hi Brokie friends! What have you got going on this fine weekend?

I have so much and so many to remember. I'm going to get out my photos from the Second Brokeback BBQ in Estes Park, Colorado, and review them. Maybe post some. I'm so glad so many people came!!

Regarding Jack being shot "in shadows" - what is your take on the motel scene? Why does Jack look like some kind of a puppet, far from a living being?...
Sure, you are not the one who shot this movie, but i would love to hear your associations with this!

The first time I saw the Siesta Motel scene, I was surprised to see them in such an extreme closeup, but when I thought about it later, I decided it works that way. If it had shown more of their bodies, the focus would have been different when the scene was all about how they were trying to wrap their heads around this new development in their lives. Over the long four years each had realized the powerful hold they had on one another and now in the Siesta Motel it was all coming to a decision point. Jack is behind Ennis with his arm around him, which mirrors the dozy embrace later when Ennis was behind Jack. There is a blue light (assuming it is coming from a window) on Jack, while there is a warm light on Ennis. This correspond to the colors associated with each character. When Jack "pops the question" (What are we gonna do now?) to Ennis, he waits with bated breath for the answer. Ennis spurns him, unfortunately, and chooses the path of meeting, "Every once in a while, in the middle of nowhere." Jack's preference is for a sweet life with a little cow and calf operation so he is bitterly disappointed, but resigned to his life with Ennis, with Ennis keeping him on a short leash.

Friends, i don't know where to put this. Let's say this is a new "observation"...

So, i read 2003' screenplay. There is a scene with Jack and Lureen picking up Randall and LaShawn on their way to the dance hall. Randall's truck broke down and he was trying to fix it, but Jack tells him:

".. get in and ride with us, i'll stop and get my pickup, tow you home after the dance. If you can't fix it then, by God, drive off from it - that's my motto."

Whut?? Phew, i'm really glad they left it out! First, that would be too obvious of a reference to Ennis' motto and, second, that would definitely shift the things towards quitting Ennis. I would have not liked that...  Undecided

After Jack says "What we're gonna do now?" he doesn't move, he doesn't blink, i swear he doesn't even breath!! Can it be really a puppet in this shot?? Jake G not available? Maybe the scene was re-shot later? What IS this???

Hi Front-Ranger!

Thank you very much for your reply!

Regarding the dream - i still don't understand it. For me the sentence remains to be contradictory... But since there are only two of us here i don't know whether we can come any further on that (?)....

So funny to see how checks are being phased out.
