Forbidden Love

After months of waiting to see it, I finally watched Brokeback Mountain. I literally just finished watching it and I have tears down my face. It is such a beautiful movie.

As I fumble on my keyboard in the dark, I am surrounded by the intense sadness of a love lost...torn apart by society and personal inhibitions. I dont want to banalize the intensity of the relationship shared by the two men in the movie by describing it more.

But I will say that Ang Lee has directed the movie spectacularly! And of course Jake Gyllenhal and Heath Ledger are a treat to watch. This is the first time that I've enjoyed a movie more than the book it's based on.

Song of the night: "The Wings" by Gustavo Santaolalla on repeat mode.
