God Almighty!!!

Listen to you all!!! You're all beautiful and wise and raging with empathy and humanity!!! If you all got together and stormtrooped your various Govt buildings, this world would be such a fabulous place!!!!

God! I can't believe how raw and cheesy this film is making me!!! Why is this happening to me!!!!
Hi Jim, exactly. I was questioning my sanity until I found this forum. Such kind people, such support, you will feel better in no time. I have disentangled so many of those old experiences, seeing this film was a kind of epiphany for me, and that was back last January!
Follow the road it leads you on, it is a safe one. I found this unnerving at first, treating my most private feelings this way, but it works.  So good luck for your own journey.

I feel as though I've seen the face of God, and God is much more beautiful than I had ever imagined.  (Sorry for the hyperbole, but hyperbole is about the only way I can describe how I feel about BBM at this point)

Thanks to all of you for this forum.  It is a life-saver and brings me much happiness. 

Hyperole?!?!  Not!!  I have used the expression "I felt as if I had looked into the face of God and seen the beauty of the universe."

Well, my friend whom I sahred my first viewing of Brokeback said: "It wasn't heaven, but damn close" referring to the scenes on mountain.

This is the thread for new members to introduce themselves.

Welcome to our wonderful community! We are glad you found us!
Well, I reckon I should just jump in and start and start being a torchbearer for this incredibly powerful cinematic performance.   Mountainkicker53 is the handle.   My first post, so bear with me. I've watched this movie dozens of times, bought 10 copies of the DVD, handed them out to people I know to pass out to people they know.  Those DVDs have made the circuit back to me,(ready to go around in another circle) and have changed hearts and minds, challenged beliefs, and have shown what is really in the hearts and minds of everyday people, both pro and con.  A Masterpiece performance, this movie, hands down.  No debate.  Period.  I gave my heart, right down to the bottom of it, to this movie, and a lot of salt water from the peepers, too....  I keep constant reminder of how this work of art has affected me in the stills, posters, and memorabilia proudly on display in my little corner of the world.  I was even fortunate enough to get to know someone who actually worked on this project during its production in Calgary.  Brokeback Mountain is never far from my heart, my thoughts, my daily existence.  And folks, that says a  mighty powerful lot about 2.25 hours of film!!!  So thanks for reading my little "intro" here!  Haven't even scratched the surface!!!  Got a whole lot more to say, if anyone wants to say hi....

*Waves* Hello!

I can't quite believe it's taken me sooo long to join this forum, but here I am, better late than never.

I'm Louisestrange and, like everyone here, ol' Brokeback sure got me good. I'm 25 years old and live in the UK. I'm addicted to BBM fanfic and even write one of my own - 'Go Fish' - which you can find through the slashlinks thread elsewhere on this forum (much to my amazement as a newb!), if you feel so inclined.
 
I'm looking forward to joining in the BBM-related fun with y'all :)

well spoken MK.  there's enough backlog here to keep you reading and nodding your head for a year, and that's not counting ongoing material.  you will find you are far from alone here.  you have found the crowd that gets it, whatever IT is.  welcome.

Just foiund this thread today. I never introduced myself. I saw BBM about 10 days ago...and the next day found this board. Was so glad I found it. I also was an emotional wreak after seeing the movie. I rented it and the next day went out and bought the dvd,cd and book. Read the book 4x's, saw the dvd 8 times and constintly listen to the cd. The enitre experince has been soul touching and a deep connection to the characters and the story. I have never seen a more beaituful love story that haunts you and floows you wherever you go. I also foundmyself at the least oppurtune time :-) begining to cry. I am more emotionally stable right now and love the movie even more. Someone posted that there was something so sexy about two furry chested guys falling in love. Definitly!..but without all the steriotypes that hollywood usually pusts on man to man love. I know this will effect gay and lesbian persons but It would be a shame  if it was simply reduced to a "gay" film..it is so much more then that and can without a doubt speak to all people who have ever loved and lost or was agreaid to take the chance on love.
It is timeless in its message and so refreahing in its execution. Truly I believe this movie  will pass the test of time and take its place with some of the great movies that leave you with so many unanswered questions, questions you need to ask yourself about life...the one that comes to my mind is "Gone With the Wind"
Thanks to David for this forum and for all the beautful people who have dared to share thier thoughts, ideas, hopes, dreams and vision of life...they have been a great help and a joy.
