Review In A Nutshell:
Brokeback Mountain is the life story of two men who have built a relationship with each other in Brokeback Mountain. Their story spans up to 20 years, showing us both the beauty and heartbreak in their relationship.
I have heard a lot of things about this film, many simply say this was that "gay cowboy movie" while others remark it as the "deserving winner of the 2006 Academy Awards"; it was beaten by Paul Haggis' Crash, which I have yet seen. It was rare for me to hear anything negative about this film, and the ones who did watch it and cringed at the subject matter, still managed to say that…
I'd resisted watching this for years for two reasons 1. being nominated for so many Oscars I was worried it would be overwrought Oscar-bait and 2. Ang Lee (of course if someone had reminded me Michelle Williams was in it, I would have watched it ages ago). It turns out worry number one was completely unwarranted as the film was emotionally heartfelt and beautifully subtle in not only its writing and performances, but also in its directing, which brings me back to concern number two. After Life of Pi and now Brokeback I think I can officially stop worrying about Lee as a director. It's not as if I completely hated the guy, but I just found most of his…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain is one of those films I've had on my watchlist for just about forever, and I'm so glad I finally got around to it. Set in the mountain region of the USA, the film is heart-breaking in its essence, but its romantic tale, with strong performances from Ledger and Gyllenhaal, make this more than just that "gay cowboy love story".
Brokeback Mountain has been argued about its depiction of men falling in love, whether they're bisexual or gay or neither. Their identities are complex - Jack and Ennis never truly recognise themselves as "queer" as such - but rather, despite their marriages and children - their attraction, both physically and emotionally, goes beyond any type of…
It doesn't matter who loves who.... What matters is how much of love there is between two people and the pain they experience on losing them. You might be the "straightest" person but this will still touch your heart and stay there. Heath ledger's face says it all in the end. The ending kills you..... It just kills you inside man.
I was struck by how beautiful this movie was, both in its story and in its cinematography. I already knew most of the beats of the movie, but that didn't diminish its impact on me. I actually wasn't really paying full attention throughout (more a reflection of my state of mind than of the movie itself), but somehow I was still moved to tears at the end. Jake Gyllenhal and Heath Ledger brought excellently nuanced complexity to Jack and Ennis. They are two men who love each other, yet who are unable to live with that love.
Brokeback mountain - a gorgeous, massive mountain that fills most of the frame - leaves its impact on the entire film. It serves…

I would have probably cried more but the dehumidifier was on.
I like Anne Hathaway's breasteses. They had a good performance. They should have been nominated for Golden Globes 'Best Jugs' Award.
I was worried for a second that the melodrama might be a little overwhelming. But I should've known better, Ang Lee of course pulled it off with the just the right amount of sadness. Brokeback Mountain found such a comfortable resting point between a grand epic scale and a small introspective piece about love. And to my surprise it worked quite well. With it's outstanding performances, breathtaking visuals, and a love story for the ages, it ended up being pleasant surprise of a great movie.
The story focuses on the relationship between two western boys who end up falling in love during a summer job one year and the trying times that follow. Naturally, the forbidden love of the time…
Brokeback Mountain is a strong, well paced and swell story about two gay people living in the south-states trying to cope with the communitys intolerance from the time period 1963 and thereby as the time went on.
Well made movie about a strong theme, but still a bit boring.
Dugo sam odgađao ovaj film, jer nisam vidio zašto bi gledao dvoje kauboja kak se prcaju i jedu grah, no sada mi je drago da jesam. Nisam ga baš ni doživio kao gay film, a ni kao kaubojski xD, nego više kao zabranjenu i funkcionalnu ljubav koja se stvarno mogla osjetiti. Slika, glazba, lokacija, baš odlično prikazan taj savršeni Wyoming i Brokeback. Savršeno iznjeli film Gyllenhaal i Ledger. Stvarno sam se dosta iznenadio koliko je fino zaokružen i kvalitetan film. Da je baš za oskara nezz, no priča je odlično ispričana.

From all the other reviews to Brokeback Mountain, I was expecting different. I did enjoy seeing Jack Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger in the lead roles, but the film had a some slow parts.
