Simply put, Brokeback Mountain is a standard star-crossed love story. Romeo and Juliet belonged to warring houses; Ennis Delmar (Heath Ledger) and Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal) belong to the same gender. But like a powerful haiku, the simplicity belies what is really going on.      More than 5 minutes of the film pass before the first words are spoken. This would indicate one of two things--this is going to be boring as hell, or the story is going to be more complex than one …

Movie Review: Brokeback Mountain December 8, 2005 by Amy | Edit By Amy Lamare, December 8, 2005 To simply call Brokeback Mountain (BRKMT) a gay western is to deny the core of the movie's message. Sure Ennis Del Mar (Heath Ledger (HLEDG)) and Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal (JGYLL)) are men. But the struggle they face is not one exclusive to homosexual relationships. Rather, their struggle is a human condition. It is a struggle of strength and faith in who you are and your ability, your courage, …

After watching Brokeback Mountain a few years ago, I was left with the distinct impression that it gave me a sense of pride to truly embrace the human qualities shared between two men. I felt that the chemistry between Heatlh Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal was there as they were able to convincingly portray the lives of these characters by putting their heart and soul into these roles. I could definitely relate to Heath Ledger's role as he was married and had children, but somehow through the midst …

When I first saw Brokeback Mountain I left the cinemas, broke down into a mess, sat in my car weeping, drove home, cried, and fell into a state of depression for about 20 days. I eventually crawled out of bed, went to campus, and discussed it with a professor who offered sage advice: not everyone falls in love with someone who will ultimately be killed by an angry mob. Okay, I felt a little better after that.    If a film covers a taboo subject like gay love, racism, American …

I watched about half of this movie a few weeks ago and the other half last night.  For some reason I could not catch the whole movie.  Anyway, this movie is so powerful, it's not just about two gay cowboys but a lot more than that.  You'll have to look with better eyes to realize it's simply a movie about human compassion and attraction that we all have within us.  No matter your orientation this movie is a tearjerker and one of the best movies I've seen in a long time.  …

I believe we can. This movie will be remembered for years and years to come due to its superb acting, majestic cinematography, incredible dialog, intense emotion, cogent storyline, and the excellent score converged into making this two-hour-plus movie one of the great landmarks in the history of the cinema. I agree with those who say that this movie will be discussed and studied, along with the great ones: `Casablanca,' `Citizen Kane,' etc......    Heath Ledger's rough-and-tough-but-tender-and-v …

Pros: Artfully directed; supremely acted.      Cons: Nothing really.     The Bottom Line: In the final analysis Brokeback Mountain is a stunning and provocative film and could not have been made and released at a more divisive time in American cultural history.      Plot Details: This opinion reveals major details about the movie''s plot. Let me preface this review by stating that watching two men make out makes me, well, squeamish, but …
