Cinema Crazed

An important and original romance that really and finally portrays the homosexual romance as two humans falling in love and never plays it for clichés...

Matt's Movie Reviews

A romantic western with a twist, Brokeback Mountain is a haunting and well acted exploration of a forbidden and secretive love affair between two cowboys.

Brokeback Mountain is ultimately about the paralysis of regret and how it fractures the lives of not just those afflicted by it, but everyone else around them.

December 6, 2009

Arguably Ang Lee's best film, this swooning, achingly sad near-masterpiece offers a universal love story that lingers long in the mind.

If you have the patience to sit through a slow-moving romance and you lack the vanity to be put off by explicit cowboy on cowboy relations, you'll greatly appreciate the light at the end of Brokeback Mountain, a work of art that's more than just a movie.

At times feels as ancient and familiar as any well-worn piece of American legend, even if its content could set John Wayne spinning in his grave.

At its core, Brokeback Mountain is not a gay love story%u2013it is simply a love story.

It has the simplicity and clarity of a fable, wedded to the gnarled and taciturn physical realism of the Western.

A masterful telling of star crossed love, with all the complications of any affair. Neither gratuitous nor shying away from the hidden pasion, Lee crafts a sublte and quite beautful film.

Annie Proulx's beautiful, delicate short story...has been transformed into a beautiful, delicate movie under the masterly direction of Ang Lee.

Just a well-made, well-acted melodrama that is quiet and reflective instead of big and bombastic.

Though presented as a story of thwarted love -- of ache and longing and regrets -- it's ultimately a story about the relationships that shape us -- for better and for worse.

it could have been real campy, if it weren't so well-crafted as to be Oscar material

A gallery of worthy performances, crisp direction and a quietly graceful script make Brokeback Mountain something of a landmark in Hollywood's 2005 slate of movies.

A gorgeous meditation on the sorrow of finding everything you want and not knowing how to keep it.

Behind its convenient (and infuriating) designation as "the gay cowboy movie," this is as universal as any love story Hollywood has produced in recent times.

The approach is dry as the Wyoming landscape, and while it occasionally threatens to pull the film out of shape, it's still the right one for these men.

There is very little in the cold, clear air of Brokeback Mountain that isn't first rate [although] its argument may, for many of us, already seem strangely under- and overdone.
