Brokeback Mountain (2005)
USA / English
"Love Is A Force Of Nature
"Based on the 'E. Annie Proulx' story about a forbidden and secretive relationship between two cowboys and their lives over the years.
I saw this film last night and loved it. It starts off a little bit
worryingly - just a bit too brooding. But as it gets going the story
takes over and becomes utterly absorbing.
It's a fantastic return to the Ice Storm aesthetic for Ang Lee. Lots of
concentration on the minute and the things that aren't said.
Both Jake and Heath are fantastic in it. Quite surprising really. With
Jake you think you'll find it hard to shake the his previous iconic
roles, well specifically Donnie Darko. But he moves completely beyond
that. Likewise Heath Ledger who brings a huge amount of power to a
closed-up character who really doesn't that all that much.
All so terribly moving too.
