I have no new articles to link to, nothing revelatory to say at all, really, but for what it's worth allow me to add my voice to the deafening volume of praise being heaped on Brokeback Mountain. Like so many, I was skeptical as a result of the trailer, and that single line of dialogue we all know so well. Forget it. Forget it all. See this movie and witness one of the most wrenchingly beautiful films I've seen in years. I can't say with certainty that I've seen Heath Ledger in anything before, but his performance is one of the most astonishing, breath-taking transformations in memory. Again, this praise shouldn't come as news to anyone who reads film reviews, etc., but coming from someone who has misgivings about nearly everything, hear me when I say I have none regarding Brokeback Mountain.
