the idea of limitations is also reinforced, i think, in the fact that jack and ennis don't even have the vocabulary to talk about their feelings or to describe their situation, and that's another reason why i think i'd actually prefer to see "australia's Heath Ledger" win the Oscar rather than (the admittedly brilliant) PSH for "capote" -- it's Ennis's inarticulation and lack of vocabulary that makes him so expressive, what is said with silence, the words that say the most about them are words they either cannot say or are simply unaware of.

*sigh*

i could go on and on and on and the english major in me re-surfaces after lying dormant for nearly 5 years.

but back to freaking work.

Well, at the same time, we have all been saying that this is more than the sum of its parts. The love is more than the sex between two men. And I really can't imagine that a reasonably informed moviegoer wouldn't have at least some clue about the true nature of the plot line.

I think that tagline is well written in its understatement and ability to convey the theme of the movie.

That's got to be a difficult job - summing up a well written 2.5 hours movie in 20 words or less.

Shouldn't you be against all forms of violence?

i think gay folk already have too much on their plate and needn't add anymore aggravation.

Once again you are correct it just bugs me a bit if their intention is to somehow avoid the fact that there is a sexual relationship between the men.

On the other hand it also bugs me that it is depicted by some people as just a "gay cowboy" movie- someone at the Golden Globes made an unfunny joke about it being a movie that rhymes with "chick flick" I can't remember who it was, I assume it was written for them, that "joke"

Why do you think this movie is "aggravation" for them?

Be easy on him, if he does not feel comfotable seeing a film that has to deal with Homosexuality, then so be it. It's his right.

Then why did he bother posting? Ya know?

I have no interest in seeing this film at all. I don't see the point in posting semi-trolling comments in the thread though.
