Brokeback Mountain

Question: Why were Jack and Ennis fighting on the hill on Brokeback Mountain? Ennis's nosebleed looked pretty serious.

Chosen answer: At first they were just wrestling and horsing around. However, underlying tensions and frustrations over their impossible situation, and Ennis' reluctance to commit to Jack, causes their anger (particularly Jack's) to overtake them, and it erupts into a full-blown fight.

Question: What did Ennis mean at the end of the movie when he says "Jack, I swear"? It seemed really out of place.

Chosen answer: There's been a lot of discussion as to what this line actually means, but there's no definitive answer.

Question: Why did Lureen lie to Ennis about how Jack died?

Chosen answer: Lureen may have been lied to about how Jack died. As a kid, Ennis had seen the body of a man that was killed for being gay. Knowing that Jack was 'seeing' other men, Ennis knew that he must have been killed for that reason instead of the way that Lureen explained it. Even if she did know the truth, she may have lied to him because she didn't want Ennis to know how Jack really died.

Jane Doe

Question: What exactly did Jack do with that man in Mexico?

Chosen answer: The man was a male prostitute. Jack engaged him to have sex.
