Brokeback Mountain (2005) | Directed by Ang Lee
Thoughts: FOr me, the relationship between ranch handlers Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal wasn’t that interesting, whatever nuances there were. What makes the film is how their relationship, passionate, loving, or hedonistic, or both, affects the people around them. their families, friends, etc. That is where I was most intrigued and moved. Michelle Williams was superb. Anne Hathaway was good. And, rightly so, the stage belonged to Ledger and Gylenhaal.
