Brokeback Mountain
Considering the film is so controversial, I'd like to know: what does everyone think of this film?
I just saw it like 30 minutes ago and I absolutely loved it. I thought it was quite beautiful. In contrast, my mom thought it dragged on too long (although I condradicted that with how I thought that was to make it feel like 20 years instead of 2 and a half hours) and had the wrong ending (although she doesn't count on that because she hates sad endings.). I really hope BBM wins its Oscars. Heath Ledger was magnificent, and Jake Gyllenhaal was good too.

So, what do you all think?

It has a very good shot at winning, I just find it funny that 2 years ago people wanted to hang Ang Lee from a pole for his work on Hulk (which I enjoyed) but now hes gods gift to film again

If it wins it's only because of the controversy.  Capote deserves the win.  Nobody would be paying any attention at all to the movie if it were a traditional relationship, even if it was well acted and well made.  I hate the idea that controversy helps to win.  I haven't seen Brokeback, nor do I want to, but EVERYONE I know who's seen it has said it was okay, too depressing, and too graphic.
