Overview

Ang Lee's adaptation of E. Annie Proulx's story Brokeback Mountain stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger as young cowboys named Jack Twist and Ennis Del Mar. Each of them is hired to corral sheep on the title location and they soon bond very closely. Their platonic relationship explodes into a physical one, but eventually the two are separated when their job comes to an end. Although the two follow different life paths -- one becoming a father of two and the other marrying into a successful business -- they have a reunion years later. Each is affected profoundly by the rekindling of their old feelings for each other. Those feelings lead each to consider what continuing their hidden relationship would cost them. The screenplay was written by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana.

I watched this for 2 reasons...I had heard all the talk in the media and well, there was nothing left to take out at the library. I wasn't actually relishing the thought of watching a movie that was about cowboys in love. However, that being noted, I was incredibly surprized by the film. If you have some issues with homosexuality, you don't have to enjoy the story from that perspective...there are many other ways to relate to it. The movie avoids being too political, a great relief. The highlights: musical score, cinematography, acting, casting, and the the script. There were a couple of minor flaws. It was difficult to age the characters over a 20-year period and it may have been better to see a little more on the impact the men's relationship had on their wives.

This movie is extremely good! The movie is about 2hrs and 20 mins long and you won't even notice it if you enjoy the movie! The romance is amazing, heartbreaking even it is very rare to see this type of love on screen because usually is man and woman but  movie is way better, not because it's two men. But because the acting was great and the story fit those characters very well (and so did  the characters to the actors). The movie was almost perfect for me, the only issues were that the characters basically don't age and that the story had some scenes that were kinda hard to understand (like 1 or 2 scenes so don't worry). But other than that, THE MOVIE IS GREAT!

This film is clearly not for the close-minded. It is a love story. A damn good one. Sure, the film is slow and there are way to many landscape/scenery shots, but none the less, the film is engageing. I could continue to go on-and-on, but I going just simply say--it's a spectacular love story that had me tearing up by the end.

Wow, I was moved! I thought the acting was great! The story and filming were wonderful! But then I am a sucker for a love story! This movie and it's characters blew me away. Such strong acting by Jake, Heath, and Michelle. Ang Lee put greatness back into filming!

just shows how love can try to help with lifes situations shows how much fear has been generated by CHRISTIAN HATREAD for people created by GOD, but not let live as he created . thank goodness for the new times and people realizing that GOD created everyone and it not up to HUMANS to say how we live.

This is the real Best Picture of 2005, the one that will truly be remembered. A heartbreaking story of love and loss.

This is most definately like the story of my life. I cried like a little girl after this one. This one touched my heart. This one should touch yours too. SMOOCHES.

Of the many movies that I've watched, I've never ever cried so hard and been left with such feelings for the characters as I was when I watched this one. "Brokeback" is beautifully done with scenic shots and real characters that you can't help but fall in love with. Recommended for anyone who wants to know why we should love, how happy it can make us, and how important it is not to throw it away because of what others may think.

I felt a little let down by this movie. I had never seen it when it was in the theater, but I had wanted it. It was SO long. And it wasn't anything of what I had expected... a bit disappointing. I mean the message is great, but you have to watch the entire movie.. and it is so long, how could you not fall asleep? Something is missing.

This movie was a very emotional and moving movie. I was so emotional at the end (which almost never happens) and I feel it's gonna be a timeless classic. It's worth buying and worth seeing. The only thing it needed was more intimate scenes (between Jake and Heath) but all else was good.

Brokeback Mountain should have won Best Picture over Crash. This film is hands down the best film of 2005. Although it is known as the "gay cowboy" movie, it is more of a tragic romance than anything else. It is tragic because of how being gay eats the souls of the two men. They cannot accept their feelings for each other, because they live in a time where it is dangerous to be gay. They wish they weren't gay, but know that they have no choice in the matter. Heath Ledger is magnificent in the role. He talks through clenched teeth, which is true to the character, who he holding his emotions and secrets inside of him, secret from the rest of the world. The film itself is very well made. From the careful camera work to the brilliant screenplay adaptation of Annie Proulx's great short story, everything works. Michelle Williams is very good as Ennis' wife, whose life comes crashing down when she discovers that her husband is gay. Her story is just as tragic as those of the two men. This is far from a political film, but it does carry with it an important message that love is love, and that society as a whole has to be more accepting. After nearly four months since I first saw it, I still can't get it out of my head. It is so emotional and heartbreaking. Please ignore criticism and before judging this film see it for yourself!!! (You don't have to be gay to love this movie!!!) You won't be disappointed. BEST FILM OF 2005, and that's saying a lot, since this was such a great year for movies. Check out the films below that I mentioned. They all are great. (Except Brokeback was far superior to them all, including CRASH).

Deeply moving romantic epic, not to be missed. Same-sex lovers the world over now have on the screen what straight moviegoers have taken for granted for decades!

WHO EVER HEARD OF GAY COWBOYS? Cowboys are supposed to be tough, not a bunch of stinkin' sissies! I've seen enough of this film to get sick, which didn't take me long! Homosexuality should be a private thing, if you chose to ruin your life that way, but it shouldn't be shoved up our faces. That lifestyle has no place in the movies, tv, at Disney World, and absolutely not in the church, and never the open range! You would be a sissy if you watch this movie! If you want to see real cowboys, watch John Wayne!

This movie is a cinematic breakthrough in film history, and I actually haven't seen another movie quite like this one. This is a film that makes us think about the choices we make, and whom we make them with, it also presents the way that love can transcend above such prejudices. The cast is absolutely excellent, especially Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal and Michelle Williams, who give such the stunning performances of their careers. Linda Cardellini, Anne Hathaway, Anna Faris and Randy Quaid provide excellent support, despite their screen time. I was shocked when Crash won the Best Picture Oscar, that was one of the biggest mistakes that the Academy has ever made. Brokeback was the perfect movie of 2005, period.

Everyone should see this movie. Put away your stereotypes and prejudices and watch one of the most memorable movies of our time. It's truly a story of love between two human beings who just happen to be of the same sex. Love in any form should be celebrated. Very sad and emotional movie. Fabulous job by all involved.

I was so completely annoyed when Brokeback Mountain kept winning all those awards for the Golden Globes and Oscars. It wasn't a bad movie. But it wasn't great either. In my opinion, the movie was way too long and boring. I felt like the director just kept taking his time with everything. It was more about the scenery than about the plot and I don't recommend seeing it. I am glad to say that I was relieved when Crash got the best picture award!

Greatest love story since 1970's "Love Story." Male/female relationships have been done so much that it's refreshing to see a movie like this one show how hard it is to be in a relationship and how prejudices can make people enter marriages of convenience that are more likely to destroy conventional marriages (heterosexual) than gays and lesbians who live without fear. This movie does a great job of showing how the relationship between Ennis and Jack destroys lives more than people realize. I found that the so called "slow moments" at the beginning help you understand the isolation that the two men felt on that mountain. Heath and Jake do an excellent job as the two doomed lovers. The wives (especially Michelle Williams's Alma, who makes you forget her Dawson's Creek years) are effective as well (Anne Hathaway does a good job too but not like Michelle's nominated performance.) The movie's tagline is correct "Love Is A Force Of Nature." Brokeback Mountain and LOTR: The Return of the King are the best movies so far in the 21st century. "Jack, I swear."
