"[I]mmaculately made...with career-making performances by its two reluctant lovers, Gyllenhaal and Ledger....Count them both in at nomination time." Film Comment 4 stars out of 4 -- "[O]ne of the truly convincing movies about romantic love to come along in years..." Premiere "BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN is that rare thing, a big Hollywood weeper with a beautiful ache at its center. It's a modern-age Western that turns into a quietly revolutionary love story." -- Grade: A Entertainment Weekly 4 stars out of 5 -- "Ang Lee's unmissable and unforgettable BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN hits you like a shot in the heart. It's a landmark film and a triumph for Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal..."Rolling Stone "[I]t's a nuanced and complex study of desire, loneliness and the ambiguities swirling beneath the accepted codes of rural life. And, as such, one of the finest movies of the year." Uncut "The lonesome chill that seeps through Ang Lee's epic western, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN is as bone deep as the movie's heartbreaking story..." New York Times "It's a heart-wrenching portrayal of unfulfilled Wyoming love....The movie soars for the duration..."USA Today "[T]he screenplay is a model of sensitive adaptation....The screenwriters' most significant contribution is their investment in well-defined, plausible female characters."

Uncut Included in Entertainment Weekly's Top Ten Films Of The Year -- "[A] quietly revolutionary weeper..." Entertainment Weekly 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] beautiful movie....The wide-open spaces of Wyoming, with its jagged, snow-dipped peaks and too-puffy-to-be-true cloud formations, linger long after the credits have faded. There's also a fragile, internalised beauty..." Total Film "Stellar performances, a haunting Oscar-winning soundtrack, and beautiful cinematography make for an unforgettable story." Widescreen Review "Mr. Gyllenhaal's Jack is a mercurial mix of plain, poetic and practical. Mr. Ledger's Ennis is touchingly bleak, and self-contained..."Wall Street Journal5.72415

4 stars out of 5 -- "Van Sant has a particular flair for casting....Best of all is newcomer Gabe Nevins..."Empire "In PARANOID PARK...skateboarding is a kind of rapture, a transport of delight whose graceful swoops and dodges take time by the scruff of the neck and make a short, crashing break for the sublime."Sight and Sound 4 stars out of 5 -- "This is the one where form and content truly mesh....[With] a more intimate, mesmerising impressionism -- most effectively, in the gorgeous, lyrical slow-mo of the skating scenes."Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "Sublime visual touches abound, mostly in the slo-mo skater footage."Uncut "Gus Van Sant continues to plough his furrow far from Hollywood....[The actors lend] the film its edge of raw authenticity."Box Office "[A] haunting, voluptuously beautiful portrait....PARANOID PARK is about bodies at rest and in motion, and about longing, beauty, youth and death, and as such as much about the artist as his subject."New York Times "[A] gorgeously stark, mesmerizingly elliptical story....The movie unwraps its mystery slowly and meticulously, in a roundabout, almost incidental way..."Los Angeles Times "[A] deeply moving character study of a particular boy and his world..."Film Comment 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The film's sound design, sampling Beethoven and Nino Rota, among others, links up with visual miracles performed by Rain Kathy Li and Wong Kar-Wai's noted cinematographer, Christopher Doyle....Mesmerizing."Rolling Stone "[A] humane exploration of the costs of freedom...It's the first of Van Sant's blitzed-generation films in which a young man wakes up instead of shutting down." -- Grade: B+Entertainment Weekly 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's terribly strong -- in structural integrity, emotional pull, and particularly visual beauty. Working for the first time with legendary Hong Kong-based cinematographer Christopher Doyle, Van Sant makes the gray-blue skies of his hometown Portland, Oregon, look positively enchanted..."Premiere5.689317
