"N" is Nicholas

he following is an excerpt from Nicholas Snow's Notes From The World: "Return to Brokeback Mountain."

I don’t believe any of us covering the red carpet arrivals for the Brokeback Mountain premiere in Hollywood, November 11, 2005, had a clue that we would truly be a part of history, helping launch a movie that would transform the lives of countless people around the world because of its profound capturing of the cost of the closet. I had not yet seen the movie that I now hold as one of the most important ever made, conveying the deep, undeniable humanity of authentic love, as well as the justifications and costs of locking that love in the dark.

hough obtusely dubbed "the gay cowboy movie," Brokeback Mountain would become a cultural phenomenon and one of cinema's most groundbreaking fllms.

"R" is reverberating

hrough the haze of his own anger when he stormed out Monroe's house, Ennis could hear two forlorn little voices reverberating: "Bye daddy!", "Byye!"

"T" is tightrope
« Reply #22436 on: March 03, 2012, 12:36:01 pm »
odd McCarthy, as part of the Telluride festival coverage, presented a review of Brokeback Mountain that began by calling the film:
 
An achingly sad tale of two damaged souls whose intimate connection across many years cannot ever be properly resolved, this ostensible gay Western is marked by a heightened degree of sensitivity and tact, as well as an outstanding performance from Heath Ledger.

The reviewer said that the film was:
 
… a real tightrope walk for the writers, director and, especially, the actors. All hands manage it through a shrewd balance of understated emotion and explosive physicality. The young men’s pent-up sexuality expresses itself most comfortably through boyish horsing around, but this can also slip over into outright violence, as when they hit each other with bloody results.

"U" is undeveloped

he potential of a sweet life together is there, but seems to be impossible, partly due to Ennis's undeveloped emotional life.

Round 941!

The letter "U" is next.

Each post will begin with a word that starts
with the letter "U" and include an unplayed word.


Remember when Biker #2 commented that the crowd attending
the Fourth of July celebration was all swelled up with patriotic feeling?


That patriotic feeling is going to assist us
with this round, so please be sure to include
the following symbol at the beginning of your post:
