BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN (dir. Ang Lee, 2005, 134 min.) Ang Lee’s gorgeous and intimate neo-Western sees a rodeo cowboy and a ranch hand meeting up during a job herding sheep in 1963 Wyoming. Unexpectedly, they form a bond that is surprising, risky, fraught, lasting and beautiful. Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger are memorable portraying a relationship of complex emotions, and writer Annie Proulx, on whose story the film is based, has said: “I may be the first writer in America to have a piece of writing make its way to the screen whole and entire.”
