The passion created here...makes no restrictions on who can understand and appreciate it. This is as fine a love story as there is. [May 10, 2018]

Lee has crafted a film that flouts stereotypes and becomes one of the most sincere, most deeply felt love stories in years.

What is remarkable about the film is how it doesn't politicise the homosexuality theme, transcends it to become the story of two people in doomed love. The two lead characters are wonderfully delineated.

The real achievement of Brokeback Mountain is not that it tells a universal love story that happens to have gay characters in it, but that it tells a distinctively gay story that happens to be so well told that any feeling person can be moved by it.

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...

Brokeback Mountain is in no rush. Its emotional impact builds slowly, its rhythms in tune with the countryside--the rugged grandeur of the mountains; the arid, bleak vistas of backwater Western towns.
July 6, 2010
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.
November 21, 2008
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.
August 11, 2007
It has the simplicity and clarity of a fable, wedded to the gnarled and taciturn physical realism of the Western.
June 21, 2007
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.
December 30, 2006
Just a well-made, well-acted melodrama that is quiet and reflective instead of big and bombastic.
September 22, 2006
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
