Buy it... if you are a Country music collector and you specifically enjoyed the mellow underscore interspersed with the songs in the film.

Avoid it... if you are a traditional film score collector or you despise the twang of American Country music, from today and yesteryear.

Brokeback Mountain: (Gustavo Santaolalla) First published as a short story in The New Yorker in 1997, E. Annie Proulx's heartbreaking tale has been adapted with much acclaim by Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana for Ang Lee's full, feature length film, Brokeback Mountain. The true mastery of the film in critics' viewpoint has been Lee's ability to tell the story with the kind of intimate focus on personal tragedy that keeps Brokeback Mountain from becoming a melodramatic farce or a stereotypical "gay cowboy" representation. Two male ranch hands unexpectedly discover their affection for each other as teens and immediately deny that their haphazard intercourse ever happened. As they marry and carry on with their lives over several years, they go on "fishing trips" that yield no fish, and the inevitable sadness of their predicament manifests itself when the wife of one of them finally confronts the men after witnessing them kiss. By the end, it's hard to know if everything we're seeing exists in flashback or as part of an imagined future, but the emotional weight of either result is never in doubt. Whether the quality of the film will cause it to be truly acceptable to the macho heterosexual cowboys that recently got back from the rodeo national competitions in Las Vegas is another matter; the sad irony about Brokeback Mountain is that the film will likely play best in places the furthest from today's active ranch hands, for the moral of story that the father of the Ennis character in the film tells is so pervasive in rural, homophobic Rocky Mountain culture today.
