Plot: A raw, powerful story of two young men, a Wyoming ranch hand and a rodeo cowboy, who meet in the summer of 1963 sheepherding in the harsh, high grasslands of contemporary Wyoming and form an unorthodox yet life-long bond--by turns ecstatic, bitter and conflicted. Runtime: 134 mins Release Date: 15 Dec 2005
This is the best love story between two men till date. Watching this movie 15 years later, I haven't found any movie that tells such powerful bond between two men at a time when homosexuality was more or less a taboo.
Two Men In Love at the Venice Film Festival (by bethlambert117)
It was a real ordeal to get into the screening. The anticipation was palpable. The film arrived surrounded by a plethora of innuendo. "A gay western" "Heath and Jake's hot scenes" As soon as the film started every imaginable preconception flew out of the auditorium. This is a remarkable, moving and powerful love story. The setting is that of a modern western "The Last Picture Show" comes to mind. Ang Lee's attention to detail verges on science fiction. You can actually smell the place. Extraordinary. I'm not going to reveal anything about the story - <more>
Gian Luigi Rondi a legendary Italian film critic, revealed the ending to a television audience, what was he thinking?! - The film will be enjoyed much more allowing the story to unfold without having passages underlined and attention drawn to this or that particular. I felt compelled to write this comment because I'm overwhelmed. It has changed my perception, I must confess, about certain aspect of same sex love because I didn't think of same sex when I was watching it, I saw two human beings amazing performances by both actors I have the feeling "Brokeback Mountain" will make history, deservedly so.
The feeling lingers. The images come back, not to haunt you but to reassure you. There is an element of hope within the melancholic sadness of this Ang Lee masterpiece. There hasn't been such a limpid definition of love since the world was still innocent. Limpid, yes, that's the word that comes to mind, remembering the shy lopsided smile of the extraordinary Heath Ledger. Who could possibly have predicted that Heath Ledger was such a giant, unquestionably destined to a legendary career. Well, Ang Lee I guess. Lee seems in total control of his canvas. Every frame is a moment, the <more>
silences are exquisite, the humans are as humans are and we're allowed to dive into their hearts without tricks without illusions. Raw, limpid, poetic and above all, true. I can't wait for the world to meet Jack and Ennis in this startling Ang Lee, Larry McMurtry universe.
I just saw this at the Toronto International Film Festival TIFF to a packed house with Ang Lee present for today's screening . And I have to say, it absolutely transfixed me and was worth the watch. Out of 24 movies I screened at the TIFF this year, this was the only one I rated a 10/10! Three things really stood out for me making this a stand-out of a film:1 HONESTY: Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal really pulled this off. I wasn't expecting performances so real and nuanced, and was warmly surprised. Kudos, also, to Mr. Lee for making such a poignant and refreshingly honest <more>
film!2 STORY: Great story-telling. In fact you're not actually being *told* a story. The story unfolds and the viewer watches what happens pulling you in. What a great experience! In fact, I want to experience this story again -- I'm going to look for the short story.3 NUMBING: In a thought-provoking kind of way. I left the theatre digesting the story even as I sat on the streetcar thinking about the characters. I cared for them, and wondered what could/might happen to them after the screen went black. My mind was playing out scenarios and in that sense, it was numbing, in a thought-provoking, emotionally heavy way.This is powerful cinema and is definitely worth checking out. It's the best Ang Lee film I've seen to date I've seen most, but not all of his feature films .
I was fortunate enough to see the North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. That was two days ago, and this film just wont leave my mind. Not that I'm complaining because this is what good cinema is all about.Ennis and Jack, two cowboys who fall in love. As others have touched on, Brokeback Mountain is so much more than merely a "gay cowboy movie". It perfectly captures what true, unbridled love is all about and this love transcends any issues of sexuality or gender. "Love is a force of nature". Unfortunately for many people and indeed the <more>
protagonists of our story, society doesn't always view it that way. Kudos to Ang Lee who has not shied away from the material at all. This adaptation stays true to the original short story and the two lead actors fit the roles perfectly. Ledger and Gyllenhaal give incredibly strong performances but the supporting cast shouldn't be overlooked either, particularly a somewhat unrecognizable Michelle Williams. Solid work all around and with Mr Ang Lee's vision they have created an amazing piece of cinema that should not be missed by anybody. Without giving anything away, you are going to be moved by this one.
A review from a straight Christian guy. (by cliffr2k)
This film let people understand how homosexuality is being force into misery life by the unnecessary prejudice and hatred toward them.It is sad that many people who carry traditional religion beliefs spread hatred against homosexuality.As the current society has problems that need to be focus on such as high divorce rate among heterosexual couple, domestic violence in this world It hurts me as I see one of the movie review posts that glorifies SAW2 as far more superior movie and enjoyable movie when compare with Brokeback mountain .Despite all these problems, yet people choose to pick up on <more>
Homosexuality to go against and to hate. I have great wonderful friends that are homosexual, and know family whose son and daughter are homosexual and yet they are all just like the rest of heterosexuals and they want to love god , but mankind has yet interpret god as hating homosexuality....People of the current world please wake up...!!! Just like we did in the past when we were thinking that women weren't as superior as man, black men weren't doom to be slave It was interpreted via the bible that way by the European. We need to wake up!! And spread love and acceptance to people of different race and sexual preferences! As we are all human, and we shall love as one instead of hate!!! It won't do any good to live with hatred!!!
Heartbreaking, gut-wrenching about how lonely life can be when you can't be true to your own nature (by goldilocks_78)
When I saw Brokeback Mountain last night at the Oslo International Film Festival, I was perhaps a bit over the top desirous and eager to see it, as I had recently read the short story by Annie Proulx which I had replayed over and over in my head. Thus, I was somewhat numb throughout the whole screening, and it wasn't before after I had returned home and lay sleepless through half of the night with an unfamiliar tummy ache that I realized the profound effect the movie had actually made on me.This understated and heavenly beautiful movie directed by Ang Lee tells the story about a love that <more>
finds its wrong time and place in society. It is 1963 and two young ranch hands spend a lonesome summer herding sheep up on Brokeback Mountain, where they inevitably fall in love. However, they are unable and unwilling to recognize their relationship for what it is, leading their lives into misery. The film moves in a slow and chronological pace, telling an utterly realistic story about utterly realistic human beings. The dialog is never superfluous, making every second of it loaded with significance. The imagery of the Wyoming landscape and the sparse music score conveys the huge loneliness of these two men. However, as much the movie is lonely and quiet, it is full of emotional tension.The story is above all conveyed through the brilliant acting of the two main characters. There is perfect chemistry between Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal. Ledger portrays the hesitant and reserved Ennis del Mar. Gyllenhaal portrays the hopeful and daring Jack Twist, who is open about his desires and willing to take his risks to be with the one he loves. They complement each other and bring each other's character to perfection in a graceful and touching manner. Watching them act together is one of the wonders of the world. Body language, subtle glances and facial expressions tell their own story. We get close to the protagonists and we can feel their pain.What is most painful is the characters' inability to deal with their relationship Â– not even to define it. They know what they feel, but societal norms, their upbringing and all they have experienced thus far in life has taught them that 'this thing' cannot exist. They are both uneducated and come from broken homes and they simply do not have the reference frame to acknowledge what is going on. Their words are few, and they never mention their feelings nor do utter words such as 'sex', 'love' or 'relationship'. Instead, they constantly refer to their relationship as 'this thing'. On the other hand, through their actions and body language it is impossible to be mistaken about their true feelings. It is also impossible to be mistaken about the fleeting moments of true bliss and peace they find in each other's company during their short 'fishing trips' throughout the years. Not to speak of the lifetimes of misery they and the people around them experience all the while the two of them are trying unsuccessfully to lead normal family lives.The movie stays with you. And you want to stay in it, however painful it is.
Aother film where women are treated badly. (by carpedieminv)
I am commenting on this movie after sitting through it for two hours.I found it self indulgent and far from being a love story.This is a movie obviously made by self indulgent gay male movie execs who think it acceptable for women to be poorly treated yet again in a movie with no comment being made or passed.This takes womens role in film back 15 years.Heath ledger basically rapes his wife..yet it passes without comment by the filmmakers.. Basically this film is an excuse for two men to have it their way on a mountain and women to be treated badly because they are "men"..I don't <more>
care if the men are sleeping with each other or with women it is yet again a fairly shallow excuse for men to treat women badly.The men depicted in this movie are self centered,selfish and shallow.I don't care if they are gay or not,I have many gay friends..but I do care that yet once again we women are treated in a demeaning light on camera with men not being held accountable for their actions.Grow up you young short self indulgent narrow minded male studio execs.I do give the film credit for a Stunning Location,Stunning Cinematogropahy,Smooth Poetic Directing and Good Production Design and muisc was adequate .I cannot credit anything else including the story and inspid performances by the women,and the verging on violent acting by the men.BORING. It is nice to see America put its Physical landscape on screen though for a change.There is still great beauty in this country .
Let me start this off by saying that I am a proud citizen of mobile, Alabama and a follower of Jesus Christ our lord. I agree with everything the Bible says about sex before marriage, drugs, and the homosexuals. So imagine my surprise when my wife comes home with two tickets to go see Brokeback Mountain She heard about its 8 Oscar nominations or something . Now, you don't know my wife..but she asks me to do about two things a year: go to a dinner with her and go to movie. And if I don't, I'm pretty sure I would lose an appendage and since I didn't really want to figure which <more>
one she'd pick, I just went and saw it. And I liked it. It got me thinking...what if I'm wrong? about the whole thing. I'm not saying I'm gonna agree with the whole gay agenda or anything...but it got me thinking. And that's something.
LIKED IT, but not for the intended purpose (by MatthewCJones)
I am a strong Christian and I go to a strong Christian University. Needless to say most people at my school would not go see this movie. But I am a filmmaker, and in order to be able to talk about this movie effectively I had to see it. So it did, and I was quite impressed. I liked the movie a lot. The cinematography was pretty amazing, the acting was some of the best acting I have ever seen. Jake and Heath both need to share that best actor golden globe and Oscar, Michelle Williams was great as well and I was VERY impressed with Anne Hathaway's role. Boy, she sure has changed from <more>
Disney. The story was very well told, I liked how they didn't say a lot, but still said a lot. For the "Gay thing" I think the purpose of the film was to show how two men were in love and needed to be together and in the end we were supposed to feel like they were meant to be together. I didn't get that. Frist of all, I don't think that they ever loved each other. I think that it was just lust. Think about it, they never once said I love you to each other and when they got together it was basically for the sex and they smoked, played around and argued. This lustful relationship ruined their families and their lives. Yeah, in the end Enis did keep a memory of Jack, but it was still lust. If they really LOVED each other Jack wouldn't have tried to fulfill himself with other men, his love for Enis would have been enough. And I think Enis would have moved to Texas, his kids weren't the problem anymore because his daughter wanted to move in with him. He could have found another job and Jack could have supported him some because he made a good amount of money in Texas. So in conclusion, for the awards coming up acting yes, picture and possibly screenplay, heck NO
