    Punch-Drunk Love

    ★★★½

    I cannot choose the reason as to why I watched Punch-Drunk Love more; was it because it's a Paul Thomas Anderson movie or because it includes a serious Adam Sandler as the leading role?
    This movie had been on my watchlist for a while as I do admire PTA's filmography. Sadly, I did not love Punch-Drunk Love as much as his other works, but it does not make it a horrible film.

    Blue Valentine is a raw powerhouse of a film. This is one of the rare movies that not only immensely sucks the viewer in but also feels as if this were real life happening on screen and not a feature length film. The relationship between Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams is so real, so beautiful, so poignant,…
