February 11, 2006
A jaundiced portrait of maleness in crisis… extending not only to… the central characters, but also to the validity of manhood as exemplified by every other male character in the film.

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.

The first quarter of Brokeback Mountain plays like a silent movie version of Waiting of Godot, but starring two Marlboro Men instead of Vladimir and Estragon . . .

Beautifully photographed and well acted, but also slow moving and episodic

This is a beautiful movie, and a brave one -- and not in a grandstanding, PC kind of way. Ledger stands revealed as an actor of breath-taking gifts.

Envolvendo o homossexualismo ou não, a história de amor narrada pelo filme é tocante por ser universal.

Una épica historia de amor narrada con profunda sensibilidad y maestría; gran actuación de Heath Ledger. Tal vez el primer gran clásico del siglo XXI.

Brokeback Mountain should be seen by everyone who loves movies, not because it tackles tough issues and has political consequence, but because it is a great film.

Because 'Brokeback Mountain' has made such a profound impact on so many viewers, I almost feel guilty that I can't rave about it.

Lee and his collaborators have tapped into Proulx's story and gathered it up without missing a single sad, delicate nuance.

If Brokeback Mountain is not about 'gay cowboys', perhaps it should be seen as a film about hate crimes and bullying against gays.

A film so plaintive and touching that it almost seems to weep of its own accord.

A genuinely moving story about repressed desire that transcends any boundaries the various cultural warriors will want to impose on it.

I didn't feel an "emotional" connection with this film that pretty much relies on such an emotional feeling to work.

January 22, 2006
Better films were made in 2005 -- but none with the raw, emotional immediacy of what Ang Lee has accomplished, or a more palpable sense of hope beneath a sadness that runs bone-deep.
