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.
imagine being gay and all you have to eat is beans
my favourite hobbies are being gay and depressed
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.

Where I truly began falling in love with Anne Hathaway...
Oh yeah, this happens to be an incredible, heartbreaking, extraordinarily acted film, too.
Some random thoughts for this particular on-the-verge-of-delirium 5:30 A.M. 'review':
I saw it once before, many years ago, and loved it then as well. It's a shame, this film got so much shit in my school that I felt like I couldn't even tell people I had seen it. It's disgraceful that a story of two people of the same sex, falling in love with each other, can be ridiculed so much.
I always viewed it like this: who cares? Really, what does it matter if someone feels that way? How does it effect a person's well-being…

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…
Ennis and Jack - two unacquainted cowboys - are employed as shepherds for sheepman Joe, who instructs them to lead his heard to Brokeback Mountain for the summer. During these months of solitude, the two more or less develop a friendship, which in one sudden night redevelops into a love affair (a tad too impromptu for my taste by the way). It’s one of the bravest plots coming from Hollywood. A direct blow to the heterosexual cowboy myth. Unfortunately, however, it’s packaged as straight as any other polished Hollywood production and doesn’t maintain the courage of that brusque night. Brokeback Mountain could’ve honestly benefitted from more sweat and more nudity, although I appreciate Ang lee’s aim to be amongst the…
i relate to this film because i, too, am sad and gay
loved the movie except The Beans ?? :/ anyways I cry every day of my life about Jack twist
The period romantic drama that has been downgraded to the "gay cowboy movie". After a series of homophobic jokes about it, I decided I had to watch Brokeback Mountain and find out what all the fuss was about for myself. And despite not being my cup of tea, it turned out being a lot more than what it is made out to be.
The story revolves around two young cowboys who end up working together as sheperds for the summer, and things eventually get intimate between them. Once their job is done, the two decide to move on with their lives and leave their forbidden romance behind. However, it has marked them for life and they manage to keep it…
" You know friend, this is a goddam bitch of an unsatisfactory situation."
i was stunned, shocked, rendered speechless- no, i, i couldn't fucking believe my eyes when i read the last postcard jack sent to ennis. it wasn't until the credits were rolling and "he was a friend of mine" by willie nelson was playing that the reality of it all, that that had really happened, sunk in, and i was crying so hard. goddamn even now just thinking about the names "jack" and "ennis" makes me want to go up to brokeback mountain and scream into the abyss until gay people are treated as equals everywhere in the world. i don't care if my weak lungs can't handle it. i'll die for the gay agenda
Eine beeindruckende Darstellungsleistung von Heath Ledger – dessen gebrochener, verletzlicher Blick im Schatten der Hutkrempe längst den Weg in die Filmgeschichte gefunden hat. Für Ang Lee der bisherige Höhepunkt seines filmischen Schaffens, die Essenz seines Kinos. Wer einen nachhaltigen Eindruck bekommen möchte vom Ang-Lee-Kosmos, der sollte diesen Film unbedingt anschauen. schoener-denken.de/blog/brokeback-mountain-ang-lee-and-me/
let me die!!!
brokeback mountain ended heterosexuality. what's a straight person? i don't know. i'm going to watch brokeback mountain
there's not really much i can add to this, other than in the hands of any other director this would have either been hamfisted and clumsy or worthy and overwrought. instead lee treads the finest of lines to make the story work. and greatest of all are the performances lee gets out of his cast: gyllenhaal is all puppyish but ledger manages to do the impossible and be both immovable and rigid yet also emotionally wounded and utterly, impossibly vulnerable at the same time
As a closeted bisexual man in a very homophobic and hostile environment, this overwhelmed me to the point where I literally kept staring at the screen for 5 minutes after the credits were finished. I kind of expected this to be a tragic love story between two men and that's it. Leaving the cinematography, plot, acting..etc aside, this movie created such a special feel to me to the point where I was literally out of breath in some particular scenes. The exploration that goes within their fear and anxiety of loving each other stood out to me more than anything and I will forever appreciate this film.
