The War Zone and The Sanctuary

A blog run by a Liberal Feminist woman who adores Music and all other Art in any form. Actually, she loves just about everything from Science to British comedy. But - she is pissed off with the Current Administration and all their Right Wing ideology and is compelled to fight their reign by setting up...A Blog ( ta da! ). All malice aside, this woman is most happy when she is surrounded by intelligent thought and witty conversation.

Brokeback Mountain

Brokeback Mountain is a fucking beautiful movie. A beautiful fucking movie. Yes, the wordplay was on purpose. It was not disturbing or horrific. It was...lovely. Raw. Uncaged. Not just the sex scenes, but the whole movie.

And the scenery....I've been to the Bighorns myself and that movie did justice to the real thing.

Jake and Heath did a damn good job of dispelling the stereotypes of gay men. That brings me to this thought: do we need to be so cutthroat on sexual orientation? As Ennis said, "I'm not queer." Would we not be better off by classifying this as love for another human being? What if we fell in love with someone through their mind and their personality - and rather the craving for their bodies followed? Perhaps that's why Jack and Ennis then found themselves wanting the bodies of other men. Because it brought back memories of the way each other touched and felt. It's not that they just wanted dick. I think I'm being somewhat clear here.

Yeah. It should have won an Oscar for Best Picture.
