Nobody Baby But You And Me
Dean and Cindy live a quiet life in a modest neighborhood. They appear to have the world at their feet at the outset of the relationship. However, his lack of ambition and her retreat into self-absorption cause potentially irreversible cracks in their marriage.
I feel like relationships go one of two ways and it's either blue valentine or gone girl and I want no part in any of it
I'm currently writing this on my couch in the fetal position.
I think it's suffice to say, my day has been ruined.
I'm not normally a fan of films that make it big at Sundance, partly because it seems every film that is shown at Sundance gets undeserved hyperbolic buzz and partly because many of those films are of the irksome quirky comedy variety. Thankfully, Blue Valentine is far from a quirky comedy and it is the first Sundance film in a long time that I genuinely liked.
A lot of the publicity surrounding the film focused on the rawness of the subject matter, the two performances from Gosling and Williams and the narrative structure that flits back and forward in time. For once the structure is not just a novelty (well it sort of but it does genuinely add something to…
Explicit show of the basic reality in love and marriages. There is nothing wrong with both the people involved. Both are good. Women want men to try and achieve something in their life after marriage. Men get content with what they have got. Materialistic achievements don't mean a shit when you have already married the most beautiful girl in the world to you and have a daughter that looks like an angel.
The ending would re-install hope if taken in a positive way. It will weigh your heart and sink it if you think it's all over.
If I ever meet a girl on a bus who starts cracking jokes about child molesters I will literally propose right then and there.
I was first shown this film three years ago by the girl I was dating at the time, and honestly I really didn't think much of it because I was more focused on her than the film. Now here I am three years later finally revisiting Blue Valentine. This was easily one of the most heartbreaking films I've ever seen, and has me thinking, who the fuck suggests watching this with your boyfriend? I mean goddamn this is practically the anti-date movie.
I saw some of myself and some of my past relationships in this film, both good and bad, and that is what really did it for me. Not since seeing Her for the first time at NYFF two…
Really painful really needed movie -no?
like me, not the worst but definitely not the best.
Michelle Williams is her usual excellent self. Ryan Gosling never really becomes anything but Ryan Gosling, try tho he might. In some films that is ok. In this it is not. A good film, but would have been better without RG.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
film 23, task 6: an actor or actress (someone who is primarily known for their acting) is singing in this film
it actually wasn't that sad? i mean, sure, it made me emotional and all, but i cared more about the dog than their relationship. (seriously, the dog should have lived. :((((( dogs are the best.) gosling and williams have insane chemistry and both gave great performances, and i cared about their characters, but not as much as i wanted. maybe in time my feelings towards it will change and i'll love it more. who knows? half a star or the music being composed by grizzly bear.
One of my favorite romance !!
such a bitter love story... i cry
Amazing cast, DOP and scenario. I think a lot of people can relate to this story and that's what makes it so strong.
(I saw Ryan Gosling's butt).
TRUE LOVE DOESNT EXIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Questo potrebbe sembrare un film che analizza una storia d'amore in modo molto sentimentale ma, purtroppo per chi guarda, il suo è un punto di vista molto razionale: difficile perdonare, questa è la morale del film. E non c'è niente di più vero.
Tenero, tenerissimo, anche se triste e a volte addirittura penoso.
Cinema semplice e vero.
i'm fun at parties
reminder that letterboxd is serious business, guys
