excellent - Brokeback Mountain review by kal

I loved this film, wasnt sure what to expect apart from the obvious gay angle. but what a surprise, the acting was brilliant, the emotions that it conveyed were so real and touching and it certainly stays with you. You could really empathise with these characters.

one to watch again.

Masterpiece - Brokeback Mountain review by Pete W

Forget the "gay cowboy" tag, this is just a quality film. Stunning cinematography, score and script. Ledger is absolutely outstanding - I would never have expected a performance of such depth and nuance from him - and Gyllenhaal runs him close. If you are looking for an action movie, you will be disappointed. But if you want a drama that is thought provoking and emotionally gripping, watch this film. I challenge anyone not to have a little weep during it. Once you've seen the film, you won't stop thinking about it - and it doesn't matter whether you're gay or straight or anything else.

Strong story and cast = Heart gripping masterpiece - Brokeback Mountain review by TB

Spoiler Alert

Forget the misleading ”Gay Cowboy Movie” label, if anything then it’s a Romeo & Romeo-story or as the tagline says “Love is a Force of Nature”. It’s one of the best movies for a decade and you feel the actors have figured that out too, since they all perform at their very best including the supporting roles e.g. Jack’s parents and the two wives. Of course, it’s Heath Ledger’s film playing a difficult character as the introvert and almost wordless Ennis, so he has to express himself using body language and facial expression as the tormented soul he plays. Fabulous acting!

Jake Gyllenhaal has it a little easier with his extrovert and lively character. For both of them it must be the best performance in their career so far.

Although it’s about homosexuality and the reaction from society, the film does not point finger or moralize, you can make up your own mind. A highly recommendable film one can watch more than once. Should you prefer a more upbeat movie with the same subject then ”Latter Days” is a good choice.
