Brokeback Mountain

It works on a mild score like a musical theatre filled with drama, cheat and decisive that sets up these two flawed yet loved lead characters projected by the master Ang Lee.

The two main guys have so much chemistry. This movie is beautifully shot as well.

A depressingly sad and very well-told love story between two people who didn't know how to love each other in a very cruel and judgemental world.

The pacing at times slows down to a crawl. I never felt the story really got anywhere. Some of the acting was subpar. Yes, I'm looking at you, Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway.

But perhaps I'm being unfair in comparing all the other actors to Heath Ledger. I was only familiar with Ledger from his lightweight movies so I had no expectations from him going into this film. My mind was totally blown away by his performance. His acting was so beautiful and natural. For instance at the end of the film he's playing a man old enough to have a teenage daughter. In any other Hollywood movie they would have slapped a grey wig on him and painted some wrinkles on his face. Here he just ACTED old and I totally bought it.

If I had to recommend this film to anyone it would be solely for Heath Ledger's performance. This is the role he should have gotten an Academy Award for, not The Dark Knight.

The story of a forbidden and secretive relationship between two cowboys, and their lives over the years. An excellent story that has the best elements for a well-deserved Academy Award best picture... Unfortunately it did not came to be, but barely. Crash is not that good and this is one of the best romance films of all time, and the best LGBT film in recent years.

Thanks Ang Lee, thank you for telling us one of the most beautiful forbidden love stories of all time. As some said in the 2017 documentary "I Am Heath Ledger", "it was unthinkable having a story about two gay cowboys before "Brokeback Mounain"". An epic and touching story about love and the imporatnce of not contradicting our feelings. Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal shined in their respectives roles, this movie couldn't be better, it is a perfect movie and it deserved to be considered one of Ang Lee's best works.

Both Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal give incredible performances in this heartbreaking tale of two gay lovers and their wanting to be with each other

There's an apparent graceful mastery from Ang Lee's direction with a touch of beauty in the score, cinematography, and the performances from the main pair to fire up the dramatic narrative. Unfortunately, the film faltered from the meaningless trigger that affected the storyline because of something that wasn't much developed. Lee's attempt to break barrier by exploring sexuality is decent but should've gone subtle than being abrupt by omitting uncomfortable scenes that acted upon the lack of development towards the said trigger as they're instead invasions of privacy that didn't permitted to be viewed since it came out of the blue with no meaning. Simply, it's good but Ang Lee's attempt to break ground turned against his own film. (B)

It is the 1st movie in my personal TOP 10 favorite movies. It was so warm and emotional. It had been a long time since I cried in a movie. If I ever had the time and the chance, I would DEFINETELY watch it again.

A sad movie about forbidden love. i love the soundtrack

A very powerful film about love. Jake Gyllenhaal's character wants to be with the person he loves and he doesn't care what anyone else thinks. Heath Ledgers character is also in love, but he is the other side, he doesn't want anyone to know he is gay which fills his life full of regret.

A superb romantic drama featuring solid performances, especially from Ledger, and excellent direction from Lee. The complexity of the relationships between various characters, including both physical and emotional, is one of the movie's strengths. Also featuring some beautiful and fitting music, this is my favourite film of 2005. AAN GGWD. 1001

a brave film with good performances that leaves you depressed at the end these mens whole lives were wasted living a lie to fit into what society deems the correct way to live its just a waste

The character development felt a bit weak and some of the time passing felt a bf choppy. Brokeback Mountain redeems itself with stunning scenery and dedicated performances from Ledger and Gyllenhaal. I think the subject matter might have gotten this one a little more acclaim than it deserved, but still a good film
