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.
Derek Cianfrance brought two of the hottest young actors working today together for a dark, melancholic trip through the disintegration of a marriage. From love's first flush to the spiteful, hate-filled ending this could make you give up on love and that special someone you think is just for you.
Ryan Gosling is the "indie" darling that flits between the mainstream and the periphery of independent cinema. He manages to be just about the best thing in every movie he's ever been in and with Michelle Williams a class act that's willing to go that extra step and immerse herself in a role, this had two stunning performances that bristled with energy.
A film that flits between the present and…
Blue Valentine is a film with two outstanding performances, ultimately failing to deliver its emotional punch to me because of its forced disjointed narrative.
Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling are absolutely amazing here. They give their characters much needed realism, so that we can connect to them, a connection established from the get go by being allowed a glimpse in their family life. It does not take long, however, to figure out that not all is well.
Throughout the film we delve into their relationship deeper, guided by a narrative that skips back and forth through time. It is done in such a way that it never becomes muddled and for the better part of the film it adds an…
Blue Valentine - This film is defined by the performances from both Gosling and Williams who really do knock the ball out of the park. (A)
didn't effect me as I thought it would. good film tho
basically the notebook but backwards and no happy-ever-after.
a beautiful and dismal film leaving you to believe there's only two sort of endings in marriage, and happiness is not one of them. the juxtaposed editing is effective though and performances moving.
well, I am emotionally drained
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Blue Valentine is a reality check i think people need to realise when it comes to watching or even making romance films. I was genuianly shocked watching this film as it was the first real ever time whitnessing the real ugly side of relationships. And thats werid thinking about how many romance films come out each year.
The honesty of the performances and situaion they find themselves in is so real and true that you could easily forget you're watching a film. Neither Ryan Gosling or Michelle Williams are the protagonist or antagonist, the true villian of this story is love. Love can be wonderful and bring the best outta us, but also it can be corrosive, making us latch onto something we dont enjoy just for the sake of it. And for me this is what this film projects perfectly. Which in my eyes. No other film has ever done.
Two standout performances lead a gripping & emotional non-linear drama.
no happy ending & a realistic one with that, it pumps your heart with love then stomps it to the ground
probably one of the most realistic films about love and that is so sad
