+[Brokeback Mountain](http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0388795/) is not a film
+for everyone. Indeed when I went to see it on Tuesday 17th Jan with some
+friends of mine, an entire row of [chav](http://www.chavscum.co.uk/)
+males in the row in front of us got up and left the moment the first
+serious gay scene happened.
+
+A lot of people refer to the film as a love story between two men, but I
+saw it much more as a portrait of love, hate, betrayal and in
+particular, sorrow for the female partners of the two main characters.
+Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal made excellent and in the case of
+Heath, extremely believable characters out of the cowboys. Ang Lee’s
+direction was impeccable and the scenery and music truly breathtaking at
+times. And yes, silly old me did cry at one point.
+
+I was reminded to write this posting by the [Oscar
+nominations](http://uk.imdb.com/features/rto/2006/oscars) which this
+year see Brokeback Mountain being nominated for a total of eight awards.
+In particular I think it deserves the ‘Best Actor in a Leading Role’,
+‘Best Direction’, ‘Best Conversion’ and ‘Best Cinematography’
+nominations and I hope it gets a chance to win a good bundle of awards.
+
+If you have not yet gone to see Brokeback Mountain and if cinema is
+“your thing” then I seriously recommend you get out there and see it on
+a big screen. a DVD just won’t give you the same majesty of landscape as
+a cinema. All in all, in the language of the Canonical office:
+Need… More… Thumbs!
