Ang Lee's MASTERPIECE, But Sadly Ang Is Robbed Of "Best Pict
Nandu | Los Angeles | 07/18/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My comments here don't pertain so much to the film itself than to thoughts concerning the snub Hollywood gave "Brokeback Mountain" at the Oscars that year. True, director Ang Lee won the coveted "Best Director" award that year that EVERYONE predicted he would win. Even Spielberg, who was also nominated that year for "Munich", could only say: "Too Good". But the biggest shocker was "Brokeback" losing the "Best Picture" Oscar that year to the underwhelming "Crash". Could it have been H-Wood's way of a "Brokeback Backlash"? Very well could have been.

Once in a while the Motion Picture Academy in Hollywood REALLY gets very self-important and high on its ARSE and blows it! 2006 was one of those years and instead awards the "Best Picture" to CRASH. In terms of the story packing an emotional punch, "Brokeback" is right up there with "Million Dollar Baby" in giving the audience an unforgettable movie-going experience, especially as the film marches to its shattering conclusion. As expected, "Million Dollar" won Best Picture Oscar the previous year for director/producer Clint Eastwood. And then to have Hollywood award "Best Picture" to Martin Scorsese the following year for "The Departed", well, everybody knew that was a token for making up to the man for snubbing "Raging Bull" 25 years earlier. I don't know if Ang Lee will ever get a second chance to win "Best Picture Oscar" that Hollywood has accorded Martin Scorsese, who has been nominated for several years running. The are folks in the Asian community who speculate Ang Lee (who is Chinese from Taiwan) was perhaps the victim of "Racism" in Hollywood. That might hold true to some level, but when it comes to matters like "Racism" these speculaton cannot be substantiated or proven.

Movie critic Roger Ebert predicted in the final weeks of Oscar voting that "Crash" would win "Best Picture" based on his observations and conversations with members of the motion picture academy. He comes out to say "Brokeback" was suffering from a backlash of sorts in Hollywood. To say it was Homophobia is a joke considering how many gays work in the film and entertainment industry. What led to "Brokeback's" downfall during the final weeks of Academy voting? We'll never know, but to say "Crash" is a superior film compared to "Brokeback" really perplexes me. Once in a while Hollywood really gets it right and awards the best films and actors with a deserving Oscar. But many times Hollywood really misses the mark, and sadly for "Brokeback" fans, 2006 was one of those years in giving the coveted "Best Picture Oscar" to the much-less deserving "Crash". I'm sure Ang Lee has lost sleep many a nights wondering why he won all the major awards leading up to the Oscars and then to lose the BIG ONE on the biggest night in Hollywood. That's a bitter pill to swallow."
A movie that will stay with me for the rest of my life

"I know the title sounds very drastic or dramatic, but thats just how i feel. This movie simply puts the energy of love, in all her glory on display,for the world to witness,and lessons are taught as she is betrayed.I think one of the reasons why this movie is so profound to millions of people, is because straights can witness that gay love is just like theirs. Love is the common bond between all of us here on this green earth, and Brokeback Mountain illustrates that beautifully."
