HD DVD review: Brokeback Mountain

The original DVD of Brokeback Mountain felt rather empty in terms of extras. Even in this more feature-packed variant, it still feels as if the bonus materials are only scratching the surface, providing a strangely superficial look at what is as much a cultural event as a movie. As such, in conjunction with the very disappointing transfer, this release really doesn’t feel as if it’s all that it could have been, although it is undoubtedly the best home video iteration of the film thus far.

Courtesy of DVD Pacific, I’ve reviewed the HD DVD/DVD combo release of Ang Lee’s Oscar-winning Brokeback Mountain, presented here in a package replicating all of the extras from the recent 2-disc Collector’s Edition DVD.
