Brokeback Mountain director Ang Lee has opened up about his movie Brokeback Mountain, claiming he was surprised at how huge the film became. Ang claims that he did not expect many people to see it, so was shocked at the backlash that it received once it was released.

In an interview with Reuters, Lee explained, “At least when I made it, I thought it was strictly arthouse and few people would see it. And it's a lot cheaper [to produce]. I didn't care... And then I got nervous, 'Oh they are going to lynch me, making a gay cowboy movie, that will go into a shopping mall'.”
 
He added, “I was afraid. I was looking around when I walked, when I would go home, to see if anybody was following me. Once it hit the shopping mall I was nervous, actually. My brother is a distributor in Taiwan and I told him not to buy it. He hates me to this day, he is still babbling about it.”
