Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Blue Valentine has a rare emotional intensity. There is no way to prepare for its final frames, inevitable as they are.
Fresh: An autopsy of a failed marriage, it contrasts the giddy honeymoon beginning with the sad denouement after dysfunction has devastated the groundwork of hope and newness.
Fresh: Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling tear up the screen.
Fresh: Blue Valentine comes on like a bittersweet cautionary tale.
Very emotional, but good
This movie broke my heart. Watching the painful deterioration of a marriage is non too pleasant, but this movie is done in such a brilliant, non-pretentious way. I had to remind myself that it was just a movie and that I was not watching my parents' split..
Must see! Michelle and Ryan will break your heart but that is why you will love this movie.
This is as real has it gets folks
Blue Valentine at first had a NC-17 rating due to its two sex scenes, which are not super erotic anyway but I digress. Then after taking a second look at it the ratings board dropped it to R because this is the most real to life love story that is going to come out in a good amount of time. As all the other reviews say it is a heart breaker but it is so so so amazing.
