Better late then never. Yesterday, I got to see it, this famous movie, and I do get why all the fuss.
And I do get why the director Ang Lee got a Golden Globe AND an Oscar...
A strong tale of love, commitment and fear, and simply gorgeous nature photography. The lead actors, Heath Ledger (R.I.P.) and Jake Gyllenhaal, are doing a great job here. I believe in them, and I end up seeing everything through their eyes, even when I feel for somebody else (Ennis' wife, for instance...)
So, here is the updated list of this year's Holiday DVD watching:
- Home Alone
- The Holiday
- Un Conte de Noël
- Home Alone 2, Lost in New York
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas
- Love Actually
- Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
- Ice Age 3
- Forrest Gump
- King Kong (the original version)
- Brokeback Mountain
(I realize this list shows that I'm sharing my life with children... )
