Yep, I'm still thinking about Brokeback....

My CD of the motion picture soundtrack arrived a couple of days ago. I have been listening to it a lot. I'm listening to it right now. Composer Gustavo Santaololla has accomplished much the same thing Howard Shore was able to do for me, albeit on a much smaller scale: creating original film music that so strongly evokes the scenes from the films, when I listen to it, I pant to see and experience the film all over again.

Although I thought I was all finished talking about this film, I am not. I have resumed talking about themes and film scenes in greater detail, in the LJ of an e-friend, a fellow-fan of LotR and this film. This morning, she linked me to a film review I had not yet read, by Daniel Mendelsohn.

His review is so excellent, so thoughtful, and so challenging to me, I wanted to post it here for my own reference and, well, “for posterity.”

(I have some things to say about it, too, which will appear under the review.)
