Alternative title suggestion (?) : "I just can't quit Someone Like You" (by Danny)
About the video : This is a challenge I set to myself, making a video unrelated to my previous ones and this song by Adele seemed like perfect for the story of Jack and Ennis from Brokeback Mountain.
Brokeback Mountain won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival and was honored with Best Picture and Best Director accolades from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, Golden Globe Awards, Producers Guild of America, Critics Choice Awards, and Independent Spirit Awards among many other organizations and festivals.
In the end, no matter who you love, the feelings are the same.
My special thanks to my dear friend Yellowbee for support! :)
Many thanks to all of you kind people watching this video and making it so special!!
HERE SOME REVIEWS:
OUT MAGAZINE (http://tiny.cc/nhi6aw) :
"Thanks to a web genius, you can now watch some of the most heart wrenching parts of the film set to the music of that other gay pastime, Adele. As if we haven't gone through the tears the first time, this new clip (which we found on TowleRoad) opens old wounds. Grab a Kleenex and watch."
NEXT MAGAZINE (http://tiny.cc/xlh6aw) :
"Why not take two of gay men's favorite things from the past 10 years and mash them together into one horribly tear-inducing viral video? (Weep at your own risk.)"
OCWEEKLY (http://tiny.cc/6827aw) :
"When Towleroad posted this mashup of Adele's "Someone Like You" and Brokeback Mountain, we didn't have very high hopes for it. Instead we were surprised to find that the essence of both the song and the film were kept intact via the video montage. It made us tear up a bit, and it also made us miss Heath Ledger."
THE WOW REPORT (http://tiny.cc/0li6aw) :
"No card-carrying WOW Report reader can watch this mashup without misting -- at the very least. We came this close to weeping openly. But we're an easy mark. See if you can remain brave until the end."
OH YES I AM BLOG (http://tiny.cc/hwqgew) :
"It's really a beautiful marriage of a transcendent song and film. This clip is truly a moving piece of artwork. Beautifully done Gomnitus.... Let's all live with no excuses and love with no regrets..."
