Love is a force of nature.
Brokeback Mountain is an Ang Lee film about two modern day cowboys who meet on a shepherding job in the summer of ’63. The two share a raw and powerful summer together that turns into a life long relationship conflicting with the lives they are supposed to live.
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…

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…
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…
When I first heard of this movie, I wanted to watch it soooo bad. But I never did, until now! Brokeback Mountain is phenomenal! The music in the film is great, Lee did a fantastic job for directing, and the cinementogaraphy was great! Overall it is grat!
With two excellent performances from the leads, this film was terrific. It's story and characters are developed nicely, making us care for these 2 cowboys through the situations they face. The nice score and cinematography both make this film seem beautiful in a way and even with a weak pace, I was totally into the film and it never bothered me once. I ask the Academy why this didn't win best picture but since I haven't seen "Crash" yet, I won't ask.
I remember everyone talking about this film when it came out, it was everywhere; but for whatever reason I never got around to see it. Brokeback Mountain was an unexpected hit, it earned almost every type of award in existence and it helped to solidify Ang Lee’s career in Hollywood (culminating with the Oscar for Best Director in 2012 for Life of Pi).
Despite the good chemistry and believable relationship between the two actors and the fact that I liked how they left some things ambiguous Brokeback Mountain doesn’t really leave up to the expectations. At the end of the day it’s an average romantic film, not bad, but definitely not that memorable or groundbreaking. I think is one of…
Ah... o amor. Sentimento indescritível não é verdade? Não acredita? Então veja o dicionário afirma:
Amor - s.m. Afeição profunda de uma pessoa por outra, afeto a pessoas ou coisas, sentimento de dedicação absoluta de um ser a outro ser ou coisa... E por ai vai.
Concorda? Discorda? Complicado não é? Nem tanto se nos basearmos em dois ótimos filmes em cartaz atualmente: Johnny e June e O Segredo de Brokeback Mountain.
O primeiro trata – se da cine biografia do grande mestre Johnny Cash, cantor mor do country norte americano.
O filme foca, inicialmente, a infância de Cash onde pode – se notar os motivos de tanta voracidade: um pai extremamente autoritário e a perda de seu irmão que…
Una historia de amor, una tragedia, filmada como pocas. Impresionante Ledger.
Heath Ledger blew my mind. A young Jake Gyllenhaal's dreamy eyes emphasize the troubles of masculinity.
Good to watch in comparison with Blue is the Warmest Color
A little bit slow at times, but wery beautiful movie. I watch it for the first time 2 years after official release only because of the noice that followed it: I don't wanna watch it because it is a story about two gay cowboys - nothing interesting for me. But now I understand that it's much more than just a story about two gay cowboys. It's movie about forbidden love and not daring to follow through with it against all conventions and the grief that comes with it. The end is touching, and the scene where Heath Ledger hugs Gyllenhaal's shirt will be one of the scenes he will be remeberred for. Now I really see how great loss to everyone of us is Ledgers death. RIP maestro...
Very austere picture that leaves the weight up the actors to carry. Who knew watching grown men cry and try to seem aloof could be this distressing?
Only real con, seeing as the film is apparently spread out over such a long period, is that the perception of the passing time is far shorter and more abrupt than what is postulated.
