Brokeback Mountain

Gary Needham

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Provides an overview of Focus Features as a hybrid company operating across both the mainstream and independent cinema sectors.
  • Analyses Brokeback Mountain as a Western and places it within an enduring historical and cultural context of relations between homosexuality and the genre.
  • Analyses Brokeback Mountain as a melodrama examining the film's relationship to concepts of pathos, backward feeling and passivity.
  • Proposes a new way of thinking about gay spectatorship that takes into account how editing and cruising relate to one another."
