    Additional Features

    The additional features on the Brokeback Mountain Collector's Edition are much like the film itself--understated, intelligent, and thought-provoking, and all unfold at a leisurely pace. There's nothing extremely in-depth here, but it provides a nice background for a movie that took on a life of its own during its high-profile release. Most interesting is the "A Groundbreaking Success" feature that tracks the movie's cultural impact from low-profile art film to controversial, Oscar-winning blockbuster; it's the only feature that reaches out to people who didn't work on the film. Also worth a look are "Music from the Mountain," which explores Oscar-winning composer Gustavo Santaolla's creation of the spare, guitar-oriented score, and "From Script to Screen: Interviews with Larry McMurtry & Diana Ossana," in which Brokeback's screenwriters explore the themes of the film and its metamorphosis from New Yorker short story to two-hour film. Most of the features in which the actors appear can be given a cursory look--they all obviously had a great experience making the movie and all adore director Ang Lee, which while happy is not incredibly revealing, though star Heath Ledger's contributions are by far the most measured and intelligent. However, definitely avoid the jarringly superficial behind-the-scenes special created for the Logo network. In some ways, it's still too soon for an in-depth exploration of the movie's impact, and hopefully within the next five to ten years someone will assess how Brokeback changed the cinematic landscape, but for now these extras provide helpful insight into the film. --Mark Englehart

    5.0 out of 5 stars Brokeback Mountan sure got us good March 19, 2006
    First off let me just say, wow, everyone was right, as a straight male I can truly say this movie touched me in a way no other film ever has. BBM definately deserved the Best Picture Oscar, and what makes me mad is that I really liked Crash, but thanks to the Academy I cant watch it without thinking, how could they choose this over a masterpiece like Brokeback.

    So most of you already know the story so I'll tell you about how this film affected me. My girlfriend wanted to go see this movie last week and I was actually pretty excited. I saw the previews and thought wow finally something original from Hollywood after a year full of crap. So we went and after the movie was over there were of course people crying but I didnt know what to feel, I thought the ending sucked but the acting was pretty good.

    Then I found myself thinking it over on the ride home, and all night I dont think I said more than two words to my family, and then as I was getting ready to go to sleep I started to tear up, I called my gf and she had the exact same reaction. Brokeback is a movie that definately touches you, not because its a gay romance, but because its a beautiful parable about loneliness, love, and what it means to be a man. I was reading a review about BBM and what it said was true. BBM was needed because the gay community has become a joke in this country, sure shows like Will and Grace and Queer Eye are out there but it just reinforces the stereotype that all gay men are fashion obsessed, feminine, and funny. Well I have gay friends, and most of them are just like me, theyre regular guys who do manly things and who just so happen to be attracted to other manly man because God made them that way. BBM definately does a lot of good in showing a more realistic side to the gay community.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Ennis and Jack December 15, 2005
    Love has no rules. It happens when we least expect it, often when we don't want it, many times when we can't handle it. It often times scares you, surprises you, shakes you down to your very core. Ennis Del Mar (a remarkable Heath Ledger) and Jack Twist (an emotionally available Jake Gyllenhaal) find themselves thrown together because of a job: forced to spend many hours together alone in the wild, tending to sheep in a remote region of Wyoming....on Brokeback Mountain. They fall in love: a love that they soon realize only lives and breathes on the mountain.
    It's 1963, pre American involvement in the Vietnam War, post Korean War: a time in the USA when life was simple, straightforward and the lines between the sexes and sex roles were crisply drawn and severely delineated. It was a time when men and women were pigeon-holed into unrealistic modes of behavior and anyone who ventured outside of these boundaries was thought of at best, weird at worst... perverted and in many states, criminal. Ennis himself, at an early age was witness to the ugly, disgusting results of a hate crime perpetrated on a Wyoming farmer who had lived many years with his partner. In most societies he would be venerated but in 1950's Wyoming... he became a target.
    Director Ang Lee begins this film as both Ennis and Jack are waiting outside of a building, both looking for work, both down on their luck, both avoiding each other's eyes. We know, or those of us who have read the story know, what is to happen and so unfortunately we read more into that simple scene than there really is. But with all that aside, this scene of Ennis and Jack avoiding each other, dodging each others looks, staring at the ground, kicking up the dirt is nonetheless rife with sensuality and tension.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Genius Script + Stunning Blu Ray December 7, 2011
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    I want to mention two things about this movie. First, how brilliant it is. And second, how beautiful the blu ray transfer looks.

    1. It's been six years since Brokeback Mountain hit theaters, and although I've watched the film countless times since, if I had only seen it once, I can promise you I would never forget it. It is a storyline that you dream about, relate to, cry over, reflect upon, write about, and become haunted by. I watch a lot of movies and enjoy plenty of them, but never has a film inspired me to analyze its story so deeply and to read books on it by film critics and touched fans. The fourth time I watched it at the theater, I took a notebook and filled pages with notes on the beauty of the poetic transitions and the development of characters. But even during my 20th viewing (or however many times it has been now) I discovered new richness and depth in the story.

    Without going on and on, I suppose I should just say that I love this movie. But before I talk about the blu ray, I just want to point out that this is not strictly a "gay" movie any more than Titanic or Romeo and Juliet are straight movies. Love is a force of nature, as the tag-line says, and it is not bound to one sexuality or another. The movie is, simply put, a human movie about human life, desire, hate, mistakes, and many other universal emotions that make up us all. I recommend you see it and after it's over, I recommend you see it again. Like Shakespeare, the story is endlessly multidimensional and deserves multiple viewings to truly grasp it all. Obviously Annie Proulx's original short story is also required reading (I would suggest reading it before watching, but either way is fine) as it contains endless brilliance as well. The overall talent involved with this project is stunning.

    Would they have been gay without one another?
    Hi Andrew-

    Well, I think that if you watch the movie again, you will realize that Jack is referring to the guy with the chatterbox wife-and not to the wife. Much like not wanting to reveal that he had been to Mexico (where he rented male prostitutes), he did not want to tell Ennis that he may... Read More

    Something haunts me still........Jack's Death
    Hi Kirk,

    There's a big debate over the way Jack died, between what some call "tire ironists" - those who believe he was murdered, and "accidentalists" - those who believe Lureen's explanation was the truth. I happen to believe the murder version, but I can understand why the... Read More

    You been to Mexico Jack Twist??? Strange.....
    I've wondered about this myself. I assume it must have been common knowledge around that time just as one might have heard where to buy drugs or other illicit things. Maybe it was something his homophobic fellow ranch hands would have joked about.

    why did BM lose best picture?
    I think the the chance for BBM in Oscar probably changed because, in Hollywood, the cowboy has been always an imaged stereotype in motion pictures through the ages (e.g. John Wayne). And I noticed that simply a squarely "back to basic" cast like Clint Eastwood could be safely... Read More

    Was Jack unfaithful to Ennis (with another man)
    I think Jack was frustrated and desperate; after all, he had been waiting for Ennis to come around all this time. I kind of can see this when they part after their last trip, and Ennis walks away and Jack watches him go with such hopelessness. Jack remembers the only time when Ennis actually... Read More
