Heath Ledger's other great role, before his untimely death, and (socially) a more important exercise in performative empathy (despite the magnetic mania of the Joker)... Gyllenhaal adds the second stud to the stable, and their performances are as believable as you can probably get from two straight men...
4.5 cada vez que jake gyllenhaal dice "i wish i knew how to quit you" lloro --- "Brokeback Mountain" has been described as "a gay cowboy movie," which is a cruel simplification. It is the story of a time and place where two men are forced to deny the only great passion either one will ever feel. Their tragedy is universal. (r.e)
I feel ambivalent about this movie due to the hype surrounding it. There were good performances, but where the hell was the vaseline? Hollywood pretends to be forward-thinking, but it's always half-stepping. I did walk around for a while saying "I can't quit you" in that voice. It reminded me of Daniel Day-Lewis saying "I will find you" in 'Last of the Mohicans'.
How the hell did "Crash" win Best Picture? Ang Lee creates a western that has all of the conventions of a classic western, but then subverts those conventions entirely with the subject matter. This film was snubbed in the Best Picture category. Gyllenhaal is good as Jack Twist, but Heath Ledger is nothing short of a revelation as Del Mar. The final scene is so sad that I end up weeping every single time I watch it.
