In America sex is an obsession.  In other parts of the world it is a fact.

Annie Proulx said of Jake Gyllenhaal's acting:

"...Gyllenhaal's sensitivity and subtleness in this role is just huge. The scenes he's in have a kind of quicksilver feel to them."

Oh, Ro, U don't know.... look who I've found!

Talk about "sensitivity and subtleness", the absolute most intense yet gentle eminates from Roberta Maxwell as Mrs. Twist!  :'(

ENNIS No, sir. I just never heard a no place called Brokeback.

The OLD MAN points to a long, barren mountain to the north, its upper reaches miles away, reaching well above the tree line.

Jack and Ennis satisfied their voracious appetities on elk, whiskey and each other.

In the scene where Alma is taking the laundry off the clothesline, there is a wheelbarrow in front of the little house's concrete porch.

X is xpectorating

There is a fair amount of xpectorating in this film.  The saddest one for me is when, as they are coming down off the mountain, Jack spits in Ennis's horse's path, after Ennis decked him.
