Brokeback Mountain on Dvd ...

A good end to a rather painful day was to watch a fantastic and beautiful movie in the comfort of my own home. Third times a charm. I still get moved by this film as I did the first time I saw it. This is another movie that will be part of my home theatre collection. Now, I think all the movies nominated for this years Oscars 2006, are now out on DVD.

“The shirt seemed heavy until he saw there was another shirt inside it, the sleeves carefully worked down inside Jack’s sleeves. It was his own plaid shirt, lost, he’d thought, long ago in some damn laundry, his dirty shirt, the pocket ripped, buttons missing, stolen by Jack and hidden here inside Jack’s own shirt, the pair like two skins, one inside the other, two in one. He pressed his face into the fabric and breathed in slowly through his mouth and nose, hoping for the faintest smoke and mountain sage and salty sweet stink of Jack but there was no real scent, only the memory of it, the imagined power of Brokeback Mountain of which nothing was left but what he held in his hands.”—Ms. Annie Proulx
