Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Blue Valentine (2010)

Directed by Derek Cianfrance

Starring Ryan Gosling, Michelle Williams, Faith Wladyka, John Doman

Author

Gosling and Williams deliver nervous, uncomfortable performances. And it’s not just the characters that are destabilizing. Disjointed flashbacks of intensely emotional scenes, awkward editing, an ethereally chaotic score, ad libbing add to the mix. It’s obvious that this is what Cianfrance was going for, but that doesn’t mean it’s a joy to watch.

Really cool closing credits.
