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.
This is one of the best films I have ever seen and it has only grown on me over the years. Heath Ledger should have won an Oscar for his performance - a masterclass in restraint and internal conflict. More than just a film about forbidden love, it is about the tragic way people repress a part of themselves to "fit in"
A really interesting plot, destroying the cowboy "ultra-male" stereotype. I really enjoyed the cold and confused presence of Ledger's performance. But, in my opinion, Ang Lee and his screenwriters destroyed the "essence" of the film with a big mistake: showing again and again the couple's meets and repeating the same scene with just little changes, that turns the story really boring sometimes.
