Brokeback Mountain

I watched Brokeback Mountain and to my surprise, I love it. To be honest, I always avoid homosexual related thingy. It's just yikes!!! However, who can refrain the attraction of two hot actors? I'm telling you, Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger are just gorgoues. Seeing them in Brokeback Mountain, I'm having a hard time choosing... hehehheeeee...

I love Brokeback Mountain. Ang Lee has made me feel not so yikes!!! about gay relationship. The actors are so talented that they made me accept that 'Love is a force of nature'. The scenery & cinematography so wonderful that made me imagine myself herding sheeps together with Jack Twist and Ennis Del Mar. I can smell the grasses, I can touch the flowers, I can feel the wind on my face, I can feel the cold water of the river... I can even hear the bluebird sings. In fact I'm'standing' on Brokeback Mountain while I'm writing this. I love this story so much, that I watched it again & again.

Then today I read a heading in a newspaper that Jake Gyllenhaal and Ang Lee are given some kind of awards for human rights. What kind of human rights award, I wonder. Is it the award for acknowledging homosexuals?

This is like a wake up call to me.

I have to apologize. No matter how many times I tell myself, I cannot bring myself to support this 'kind' of human right. It's just not right and it's against my religious belief.

So, bravo to Brokeback Mountain. Bravo to Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal for your outstanding performance. But I hope there will be no more movies like this.

To Jake Gyllehaal, I really really hope that you'll get the Academy. You deserve it.
