Director Ang Lee's "Brokeback Mountain" made serious waves when it released in 2005, bringing on a glut of Oscar nominations (eight), headlines and satirical tributes. The cultural discussion surrounding the movie was loud, but what about the movie itself?

In this episode, Mike and Brian dig into its best moments, debate the Oscar race for Best Actor, talk trivia and decide whether the film, starring Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal, deserves a spot in the year's top five.
