ABSTRACT In Brokeback Mountain, the grand Western tradition's he- roes are deconstructed, and the monumental landscape with its coded promise of freedom and opportunity reduced to the scale of a postcard. Brokeback Mountain transforms into melodrama, albeit with a restrained style that disguises its radical take on an America betraying its original ideals.
