Movie Meme: Day 20

"31 Day Movie Meme"

Day 20 | Favorite kiss

This particular kiss comes from Brokeback Mountain and is between Ennis del Mar (Heath Ledger) and Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal). It comes four years after they first meet and spend time together at Brokeback Mountain herding sheep (among other activities) for the summer.

The great longing that must have simmered during that long break is quite evident even before the two men touched lips. When they first hug, the electricity between them is palpable. There's also this wonderful moment just before they kiss when Ennis turns toward his house to make sure his wife Alma (Michelle Williams) is not looking and the only things Jack is paying attention to are Ennis' lips...

Then they kiss. And it's one of those kisses that's no holds barred, passionate, throw you on the wall type of kissing. The excitement of their kiss is compounded by the danger of Alma seeing them, which she does, unseen by the two men...

As the audience digest this very important plot development, the two men wrap up their make-out session grazing their noses at one another and finally pulling away. Whew.

Thanks for reading. Feel free to drop me a line. Instead of being Anonymous though, pick a name. Any name would do. Thanks again!
