Heath Ledger's 'gay' cowboy beats Clooney's latest
WorldNetDaily ^ | 9/11/05 | WorldNetDaily

Posted on 09/11/2005 12:27:51 PM PDT by wagglebee

"Brokeback Mountain," the story of two homosexual cowboys starring Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal, topped 19 competitors, including George Clooney's "Good Night, and Good Luck" to win the Venice Film Festival's top award yesterday.

The film has been called "groundbreaking" by homosexual activists for the amount of "gay" sex that is shown on screen.

Mel Gibson fans will remember Heath Ledger as the eldest son in "The Patriot" determined to fight for independence against the British, the innocent but brave fair-haired boy-man who struggles for justice even among his fellow southern colonialists.

Gyllenhaal is best known for his role as Dennis Quaid's son in "The Day After Tomorrow," last year's science-fiction film that portrayed how climate could flood New York City and put the Northern Hemisphere into a new Ice Age.

Gyllenhaal told Gay.com that filming the homosexual scenes were difficult, but for physical rather than emotional reasons, almost leading to a fractured nose.

"[Ledger] grabs me and he slams me up against the wall and kisses me, and then I grab him and I slam him up against the wall and I kiss him," he said recently, adding the love scenes were the most violent he'd ever done.

"We were doing take after take after take. I got the sh-- beat out of me. ... We had other scenes where we fought each other and I wasn't hurting as badly as I did after that one."

While Ledger admitted his nervousness about portraying a homosexual, Gyllenhaal said understood the universal aspects of the relationship, despite reaction from his friends.

"They're all like, 'Dude, you're gonna kiss a guy.' But it's not about that for me. It's about how impossible love can be sometimes, and I can relate to that."

"As well as that, every man goes through a period of thinking they're attracted to another guy," Gyllenhaal added.

While "Brokeback Mountain" received the Golden Lion award in Venice, George Clooney did not go home empty-handed.

"Good Night, and Good Luck" won best screenplay, and its star, David Strathairn, garned best actor for his portrayal of journalist Edward R. Murrow.

Murrow used television in the 1950s to highlight alleged bullying tactics of Sen. Joseph McCarthy in his anti-Communist crusade.

"This film is a tribute to the reporters who are in Afghanistan, in Iraq, in Africa, in our poor city of New Orleans, to bring us the truth," Clooney said.

Homosexual agenda ping!

The Venice Ultra-Far-Left Propaganda featured faggot cowboys and criticism of Joseph McCarthy's crusade to rid America of communism.

CARTMAN: …independent films are those black and white hippie movies. They’re always about gay cowboys eating pudding.

WENDY: No they’re not. Independent films are produced outside the hollywood system. They’re movies without all the glitch and glamour of Hollywood.

CARTMAN: Well, you show one independent film that isn’t about gay cowboys eating pudding.

It's still porn. Hardly groundbreaking.

It seems that the "gay" thing is a big hit with the artsy-fartsy movie crowd. Most were heard leaving the theater saying, "Most of my best friends are gay."

Note this:

Look in the mirror, dude.

I hope that absolutely no one ever goes to see this movie aka as a steaming pile complete with buzzing flies. I also canNOT imagine acting in a movie or play a "gay" love scene. No normal person could even act that out. No way. But then, how many actors are normal people? Precious few.

Freepmail me AND DirtyHarryY2K if you want on/off this pinglist.

I saw the preview for this movie the other night when I went to see "The Constant Gardener."

I swear that I thought it was a Saturday Night Live Spoof when I realized that the two manly cowboys were gay.

Who the hell would want to see this trash?

I predict a major flop -- Duh! (except in San Francisco and West Hollywood).

I also predict a resurgence of cowboy attire in the fashion industry!

"As well as that, every man goes through a period of thinking they're attracted to another guy," Gyllenhaal added.

For me I must admit it's true. Yes, I have to say I was attracted to another guy. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was very young. The camera slowly ran up some gorgeous legs that were in pantyhose. Gads! I thought, those are hot legs!

Then I saw it was JOE NAMITH! Spit! Ack! Puke! Bad mental picture! Bad mental picture! He has a penis! Ah!!!!!

So, I must admit I had a lapse for just a short period of time. A couple of seconds, that's all. The rest of the time I've had no desire to get anywhere near some guys hairy buttox or do really gross things with something that either contains or has been covered with feces. /sarcasm stops here

Doesn't it seem that "if it's gay, it's got to be good" seems to be a mantra?

Lee has had good movies before and I am sure he put himself (uh...) into this one, too, but I am frankly sick of so many gay-oriented television shows and movies.

Really, there are people left in the world who don't put their thingy into the wrong place.

You're right, they don't. Only place these statement are true is in the homosexual community themselves, nowhere else. Same as the movie, the only place that did well. Makes for a pretty small audiance.

Well, since homosexual fashion artistes design their clothes for 'pretty boys', hence the rail thin models used on the runways, I'd think that's a pretty fair bet.

I'm not getting a good visual of you and Joe. But I did go to a rodeo in Cody Wyoming a while back and those cowboys wouldn't go for that other stuff. Those kids were amazing and straight as a knife blade at your throat.
