Cassie thought Ennis was her loverboy, but Ennis had other ideas.

"Brokeback Mountain" Lassoes a Mammoth Limited Opening
Focus Features opened its anticipated Venice, Telluride and Toronto fest feature "Brokeback Mountain," scoring the highest per screen average of any specialty release since this column began two-and-a-half years ago. The film easily lead the herd of specialty releases, handily taking the number one position on the chart, as ranked on a per screen basis, and had the second-highest overall gross. The indieWIRE Box Office Table (iW BOT) saw only a few additional titles opening aside from "Brokeback Mountain," including The Weinstein Company's "Mrs. Henderson Presents," the only other newcomer to enter the chart's top five. Last week's number one film, "Transamerica" took the second position, while THINKFilm's "The Boys of Baraka" placed third on the specialty list. Focus again scored the chart's highest grossing film with "Pride and Prejudice," while Warner Independent Pictures' "Good Night, and Good Luck" had the third highest gross in a weekend that, overall, saw a decline in the number of specialty films and screens offered.

"N" is narrator

Wikipedia on the literary form of Brokeback Mountain (short story):

"Brokeback Mountain is a story told by an omniscient narrator. The narrative is realistic in tone and employs description, metaphor, and dialogue to examine the actions, thoughts, emotions, and motivations of its main characters."

In one version of the script, the slain sheep is the omen of Jack's death.

“Brokeback Mountain” has stirred some controversy because of it being called the “gay cowboy movie.” And because of that, a movie that many wouldn’t know much about, are acutely aware of the film. I should say here that while the story of the film does revolve around two men, it is really just a love story. As for the music in the film it helped set the mood and pacing of the movie and to hear the soundtrack is a treat.

Composer Gustavo Santaolalla has 6 solo score tracks on the CD while writing, with Bernie Taupin, 4 others, including the wonderful Emmylou Harris track “A Love That Will Never Grow Old.” Willie Nelson sings the wonderful Bob Dylan penned track “He Was A Friend Of Mine.” Two “pop” singers, Teddy Thompson and Rufus Wainwright perform Roger Miller’s “King Of The Road.” They do quite a good job with the track. Jackie Green’s “I Will Never Let You Go” is a short sub two minute song yet is quite effective. Steve Earle’s “The Devil’s Right Hand” is a nice change of pace from the rest of the record, while Linda Ronstadt’s “It’s So Easy” is a nice recogonizable track.

Jack endeavored to snatch Ennis's shirt before they left the mountain.

When Ennis went into the tent with Jack for seconds, he entered uncharted territory, opening up an emotional terrain he'd never thought to explore.

Very belated wishes for a Happy Birthday!

"U" is untruths

Paraphrasing from the short story:

Without getting up, Jack threw deadwood on the fire, the sparks flying up with their truths and untruths, a few hot points of fire landing on their hands and faces, not for the first time, and they rolled down into the dirt.

Learning of Jack's death was a shock as hot as wasabi to Ennis.
