I've been waiting a long time to be able to mention this here but it's finally finished and up on FindingBrokeback. I'm not sure if this ever would have happened if you original Tremblayans hadn't first done your interview in 2006, because I'm not sure that we would have even considered him approachable, but I was very fortunate to have met Pierre last summer on my second trip to Alberta and there is an extensive new interview with him now available.

Thank you to all of you who had a part in the first one; thanks for leading the way on this!

(I didn't mean for this to be stickied in front of the original interview. Can someone please move it down? Is that possible?)

Lauren, I can't wait to read this!  You can unsticky it yourself by clicking on the "sticky" button at the bottom of the page, it toggles the sticky/unsticky feature.  But I think it would be great to sticky it for a while, it's big news!

Ha! Is that the Mexican town set in the background? Hilarious!

I think it should be stickied too, but I didn't mean for it to appear in front of the 2006 interview. Maybe in a little while it could be moved down under the first one.

The text under the picture of the cast needs to be changed to say "Jim Bond and Tamarack." I didn't do it by myself, and Jim sure didn't need me there in order to do it! That was a gift!!

What a wonderful, wonderful interview.

This is what I had hoped for in the orginal DVD--and never found.

Thank you, Pierre Tremblay, and thank you, tamarack.

Beautiful. (And beautiful photos--)

Again, a heartfelt thank you!

This is just absolutely awesome and fascinating.  Thanks so, so much for posting this.  All the photos and info about the deleted scenes and aspects of production are just the kind of thing I've been so curious about regarding BBM for so long!

Amazing. 8)

What an absolutely wonderful, informative, totally great interview - a fantastic mix of background commentary, anecdotes and filming tidbits, and details on every aspect of how this beautiful movie came into being. I read it with elation. And I loved the images. The last one of the cast and crew up on Brokeback - with Jack and Ennis Jake and Heath side by side with one of the dogs - what a lovely picture!!

Thank you sincerely.


And aaargh! Why oh why isn't there a special DVD or a proper book on the making of the film that contains this kind of info?
