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.
September 10, 2006
it could have been real campy, if it weren't so well-crafted as to be Oscar material
August 22, 2006
Film with much religious and mystical imagery.
August 20, 2006
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.

[A] powerful and moving film, a smart study of relationships that could but can't and never will be.

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.

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 . . .
February 8, 2006
Beautifully photographed and well acted, but also slow moving and episodic
February 7, 2006
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.
February 4, 2006
This here film, aint yer ma's cowboy tale none...

Envolvendo o homossexualismo ou não, a história de amor narrada pelo filme é tocante por ser universal.
January 31, 2006
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.

... Brokeback Mountain works as both real drama and as cultural snapshot of the bad old days.
