I'm sure you've gone over this question many times: What did I get out of Brokeback Mountain? I mean I got a free box of popcorn, a Slush Puppy and two hours in a cramped Welsh cinema. But have any of us really stopped to think what Jake got out of Brokeback Moutain? Hmmm?
"A dog. This was a real opportunity to get close to animals: horses, dogs, sheep. For a city boy, it was great. My dog has changed my life. And since then, my sister has two cats and my parents have three cats and I got a second dog."
Jake Gyllenhaal, Honky Cat.
