Excellent film. One of those films that I'll admit I wanted to hate, because of the controversial topic, but I can't, because it is great. Everything about it is wonderful; the story, characters, the acting, the music, the direction. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Excellent performances from Ledger, Gyllenhaal, Williams, and Hathaway. Nominated for 8 Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Supporting Actor, this is a must see.

It was widely publicized as the "gay cowboy" movie, but Brokeback Mountain succeeds because it is, above all, a story of love and loss that would ring true, regardless of the sexual orientation of its characters. Ledger and Gylenhaal give brave performances and the film is populated with a host of strong supporting characters, as well.

While this movie tended to be a little boring at times, Gyllenhaal and Ledger both put on brilliant performances. They play cowboys who are both in heterosexual relationships but fall in love with each other while herding sheep out in the mountains. Once you get past the first 20 minutes or 30 minutes the love story actually starts to pick up and the movie becomes much more interesting. However, the story is not interesting just because they are homosexual, but because it is a story of forbidden love which comes with its own special set of problems.

Brokeback Mountain review

Watch it as it is with an open mind, not based on the scenes alone to fully appreciate its brilliance. The subjects touched were personal values, power of love, human attitudes, married life and idiosyncrasies. Ennis Del Mar (Heath Ledger) and Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal) are hired by Joe Aguirre (Randy Quaid) to herd his sheep through the summer in Wyoming. The two get close and eventually part ways. Ennis gets married to his fiancÚ Alma Beers (Michelle Williams) and has 2 kids. Jack then gets tied to Lureen Newsome (Anne Hathaway) and bears a child. Alma gets fed up and separates his cheating husband.

The two main figures shine while Michelle Williams was likewise impressive in her role. It's really unfortunate Ledger passed away soon since he really showed a promising care...

I Wish I Knew How to Quit You

This movie is briliant. What more can be said about it? I didn't buy into the hype or the negativity, neither did I join the "Pride" people who went to it nor carry picket signs outside the theater with all the Republicans. Oh, I'm sorry, did I offend anyone? What this movie did was show a love story that wasn't comfortable with American populace, and at the same time, the hype around it showed everyone's true colors as to where they stood on homosexuality in America [though the characters were actually both bisexual]. Many people talked about how Hollywood ruined the last remaining "man" [cowboys], but in reality, it made them more real and more connective. Everyone should see this movie to see love in action, developing, struggling, and dying.

Slow, with nice cinematography

"Jack Twist" (Jake Gyllenhaal) and "Ennis Del Mar" (Heath Ledger) are two cowboys in the 1960's who love each other. However, they must keep their relationship a secret because of the times.

They live the lives generally accepted. Both marry and have children. Yet, they can't live without one another. So, over the years, they get together on "Brokeback Mountain," where they first met on work as sheep herders.

The first thing I suggest is that you get the wide-screen version of the film. Even though the cinematography is fantastic in full-screen format, it would be even better in wide-screen. The scenery on "Brokeback Mountian" is beautiful, with amazing shots of the mountains. There are other great camera angles in this movie. If you ask me, this is one of the best shot movies I'v...
