I've seen many love stories, both gay and straight, but this one had a tremendous affect on me. It stuck with me for several days and still has now, months after seeing it.
Jake Gyllenhaal, and Heath Ledger both deliver career defining performances, worthy of an Oscar ( though the Academy felt diferent in the end)
Brokeback Mountain is a true love story, that touches your heart.
My only advice when watching it, leave any pre-conceived notions aside and let the film wash over you.
Trust me....you won't be disappointed.
I didn't expect it to be so moving--it's a fair bit removed from my own life. But, as you've doubtless heard, via the sublime acting by the leads and supports, the evocative musical score, the gorgeous cinematography, and the subtle, masterful direction of Ang Lee, I'd be suprised if a viewer *doesn't* have some sort of response. You'd have to be particularly heartless, or, more realistically, be an action junkie.
Because make no mistake--while this is a film crafted to near perfection, perhaps the finest film of the 21st century, the decade, whatever, it is all nuance, consideration, and weight. It's a film to be absorbed, rather than consumed like more typical, popular cinematic fare that satisfies but feels more like empty calories by the end.
If you're willing to be challenged and engrossed, there is no better film. People may shy away from the movie's seemingly controversial subject matter, but those are perhaps the ones who most need to see this. There is no agenda in this movie to forcibly change anyone's hearts and minds. However, it does strive to broaden our horizons, offering a slice of understanding about the universal sadness of loneliness and regret that no one truly deserves.
But all the other conclusions are strictly left to you.
Brokeback mountain is well-casted, beautifully acted and amazingly subtle. Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, Michelle Williams and the entire cast provide breathtaking performances. This is a movie that stays with you for hours, days, and even weeks after you see it. Although it is popularly referred to as 'the gay cowboy movie', this picture transcends sexual orientation and has a widely universal undercurrent; one that makes it a story of love, passion, and loss.
I encourage everyone who is interested in a great love story, fine acting and breathtaking cinematography to see this film, it is more than worth it!
However, in the hype surrounding the film, those interested would be wise to look at the book. There is much more depth here than in the film, much more about the interior workings of the main characters and what they must endure. This is ultimately not a love story, as the marketing has been spinning the film, but rather an expose on the dangers and drawbacks of living in the closet. For the purposes of this story, Annie Proulx has juxtaposed two diametrically opposite cultures in the American psyche - the gay culture and the cowboy culture (although history is, as it often is, in fact rather different from what the Hollywood-created current remembrance of it is). One comes to wonder at the resistance that all characters seem to have for breaking free of their bonds; ultimately, none of the relationships are satisfying, and there is an emotional desolation as wide and spare as brush land and prairies of the American West.
The lead characters meet while working for the summer as wranglers and watchers over herds. They form a bond that renews at regular intervals during their lives, lives that go on to other, more traditional and socially acceptable settings. Each gets married, each has children, each embarks (in one way or another) in a working life that would seem to preclude the other, but yet the tie that binds them draws them together again on a regular basis.Read more ›
