This movie really shows that 2 straight guys can feel love for someone else of the same sex. These guys were not gay in the way most people think gays act. They felt real love for each other and it shows. Should have won the academy award but Hollywood is too behind the times.

This movie is moving, astounding, and inspiring. It opens your eyes to something amazing and beautiful. This movie does justice to everything it stands for. I recommend this movie to whoever wants to escape into the world of true love and hope.

Brokeback Mountain possesses handsome and sympathetic lead players, magnificent scenery, heartbreaking melodrama, righteousness and cultural import. But as a testament to the importance of following one's passion, it's devoid of one crucial thing: passion. Full Review

Brokeback Mountain could use a little more of it--by which I mean more sweat and other bodily fluids. Ang Lee's formalism is so extreme that it's often laughable, and the sex is depicted as a holy union: Gay love has never been so sacred. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Isn't for everyone, but for those who are not bothered by the homosexual relationship, it offers a study in yearning, love, and loss. It didn't affect me as deeply as either "The Bridges of Madison County" or "The Remains of the Day," but it evokes some of the same feelings. Full Review

Brokeback Mountain aspires to an epic sweep and achieves it, though with singular intimacy and grace. Full Review

The Onion (A.V. Club)
It allows Lee to draw out a theme that's been present in his films from the start: the notion that repressed passion does no one any good. In Brokeback Mountain, it turns vibrant men ghostly. Full Review
