The Cinematheque Reviews: Blue Valentine

All the NC-17 vs. R controversy aside, Derek Cianfrance's Blue Valentine, a film that shows a relationship in the throes of its dying days, interspersing it with the wonderment of new love that was this same relationship only a few years earlier, is a remarkable film on many grounds, not least of which are the lead performances of Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams.  A difficult film some might say (i had no difficulty though) but a film well worth whatever ills may go with it.  I guess what I am saying, in the most basic of critical analysis is, go see this film before it is too late.
