The 31st movie I've watched this year is Blue Valentine, with Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling.
It's been five days since I watched it, and I still catch myself thinking over the plot and characterization. What I find most interesting is:
1. The film handles divorce with a new, real, and welcome perspective.
2. The man is the more sympathetic character.
3. The couple was never a strong match. Though he loves her it's not clear why, and the relief of being loved is not enough to sustain her long-term.
This was a tough movie to watch, yet it was very good.
