Wow. What an emotional ride this movie is.
From the bridgre scene and on this movie had me hooked completely. It really shines in the last half. Both Gosling and Williams give great performances, and the dialogue and script is fantastic.
The abortion scene in particular, and of course the marriage intercut separation ending, with those end credits. Just amazing. Fantastic. (I have to add that I have never felt that kind of fear of a syringe before)
Semoe scenes really resonate with me in regards to destruction. It reminds me of the catwoman creation scene from Batman Returns (the best scene in that film), when he just starts destroying things around him, throwing his ring away, etc. It really has an effect on me.
It is a light 4.5 It really affected me and just had an amazing 45 min.
