I went and saw Blue Valentine.
It was very moving.
It was like they took the reality of relationships and exposed them.
I could relate to parts of the characters love and turmoil. I have experienced some of those things in my marriage and moreso in some of my previous relationships, but I think that is why it works.
It is real.
Ryan Gosling is amaze. Michelle Williams is fab. The story is superb.
It is not a must-see in theatre. In fact the hand held camera shots made me feel a bit nauseated and I would have prefered to see it at home on dvd. (In fact, I probably will get the dvd it was really great)
Have you seen it? Thoughts?
It was sad, but real. I felt it ended somewhat abruptly, and would have liked a little more, though it was moving and quite clear where the story would go from there I think.
