Brokeback Mountain (2005)

Ang Lee directs Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal and Michelle Williams in this decade spanning love story between two cowboys.

Rodrigo Prieto’s beautiful capturing of the American west; creeks, trailers, warm looking work coats. Gustavo Santaolalla’s mesmerising score whispering in your ear. Heath Ledger’s maturing before our eyes into one of the finest actors of the 21st century with his pent up, mumbling economically, manly turn as Ennis Del Mar. Ang Lee blends these fine contributors’ work, along with many other eye-catching bits of acting, to create one of most grown up and affecting romance films ever made. A true unflinching great of this genre. Still affecting 11 years on.
