Review: Brokeback Mountain

Ang Lee has a reputation of transfering multiple layers of emotion through intricate relationships from screen to viewer, while at the same time keeping you on your toes if what you see is really there. This movie is no different, except this time, the transfer doesn’t get across fully. Maybe it’s the script or the story, but while you see passion onscreen, you can’t really figure out the origin or reason for it. Also, a warning for the faint of heart, there is some crude imagery here and there, but beneath the surface, it’s still a love story (and maybe a social statement, but I can’t be sure). Direction and acting are without a doubt top notch, but still, I have a feeling with the load of Oscar noms it might feel a bit overhyped.7½.

    Overhyped in The Netherlands perhaps, since we are more or less used to the idea of gay lovers. The USA is a whole different ballgame.

    I think “ballgame” is quite appropriate in this setting…:razz:
