No Comment Necessary: Brokeback Mountain “Costumes” Up For Auction

By Debbie Schlussel
Got a press release, today, featuring these excerpts about a charity auction of “selected movie garb”. The only comment necessary is that we hope there are no Monica Lewinsky-style Gap blue dress stains . . . .

Collectors of movie memorabilia now have the opportunity, starting today, to own two of the shirts so memorably worn by the Academy Award-nominated stars of this year’s biggest hit Best Picture Academy Award nominee, “Brokeback Mountain.”
****
These are the men’s shirts, originally selected by BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN costume designer Marit Allen and director Ang Lee, that have become iconic pieces of film history in the most Academy Award-nominated film of the year. The 2 (two) shirts are worn early in the film by Ennis Del Mar (Heath Ledger) and Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal), in the portion of the story set in 1963, and then are seen again as the epic love story nears closure many years later. Everyone who has watched this movie — the biggest hit among this year’s Best Picture Oscar nominees — knows the emotional significance and impact of these shirts in this unforgettable film. “Brokeback Mountain” is nominated for 8 Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director.

Ugghhhh – please – I just ate lunch. I really am happy their jacked-up (so to speak) about their movie – can they just stop telling me how important it is? I was happier when sheep-herders stuck to the don’t ask, don’t tell, – and why are the sheep so scared – policy.

Who cares what Howard Stern says anymore? His show jumped the shark a couple of years ago.
I fully expect him to have HOprah on his show soon so he can kiss her wide butt. Stern is washed up and has rarely been funny since Jackie Martling left. Instead of being really entertaining these days he is just a hypocrite whining about his so called enemies.
I don’t want or have to see that propaganda film because I know the plot and the message and any movie this hyped by the liberal media would be a waste of time and money. I don’t have to stick my hand in a pot of boiling water to know it’s hot.
Tell me if I’m wrong about Backdoor Mountain. Two homo sheep herders share a sleeping bag one night in a tent in 1963, have butt sex, because society won’t accept their perverted lifestyle they both get marriages which are shams, meet once a year on Backdoor Mountain for a wild weekend of backdoor action, then an incident supposedly happens to one just like that Shepard guy, and society is to blame for not being accepting of the homo lifestyle. Have I missed anything?

I am a conserative struggling with sexual identity issues and, trust me, the world will survive BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN. Every few years a movie comes along that “breaks new ground” in homosexuality (remember MAKING LOVE from 1982?). Movies come and go, what endures is a cold, loveless world that leaves boys to fend for themselves spiritually and emotionally, that belittles and disparages men instead of offering much-needed support and affirmation and a crude male culture that equates filth and obscenity with manliness. The film touched on those themes and THAT is one reason it is resonating. The sex and nudity is next to nothing. I’m not here to heap praise on two gay, adulterous sheephereders, but family-values conservatives have a gold-mine of themes to discuss here. The jokes are getting lame and rhetoric surrounding the film is helping no one.

Ennis Del Mar? Jack Twist? And this movie is going to win Best Picture? They sound like the names of gay porn stars, not “cowboys.”
Someone should write and direct a movie about a directors and producers conference, where they decide how best to mediate the mainstream towards their leftist goals. Let’s see how quickly Clooney, Moore, and Lee would denounce it as rubbish.

Why can’t some Hollywood Production Company make a Movie like Delta Force or Black Hawk Down about Iraq.
There are thousands of heroic stories that could be told and the greedy bastards in Hollywood would get rich
I cannot believe they keep churning out message movies about gay sex and the like.
Where is the Cannon Group when you need them?
