Brokeback Mountain, Ang Lee (2005)
Let it be known: this is one of my favorite films, probably in the top 5 of the ones I’ve seen the most too. I’m pretty sure the only reason I watched it for the first time in high-school was Jake Gyllenhaal but every time I’ve watched it since I’m impressed by how much I actually love it (the intensity depends on the situation in which it was watched). Most of my love is directed towards the cast and all the incredible acting that goes on during these two + hours. There is such an incredible tension in this film, one that is only intensified by the settings and cinematography. And despite it being one of the more depressing films I love, it also has some of the sweetest moments (which for the record I “hate” because it only makes the depressing parts harder to deal with, considering this point it’s a good warm up for starting Sons of Anarchy).
It’s still just as good. The acting.
