it's nothing but time and a face that you lose.

how easy is it to watch a movie that perfectly follows the A + B = C equation. boy meets girl, they fall in love and live happily ever after. throw in a kid, puppy or a new house with a white picket fence and now they're just showing off. it's been done with acclaim and sometimes to utter shit, but it's a winning formula that resonates with audiences everywhere.

but the most challenging aspect of watching cinema is how to process negative exposures and opposing blueprints. the breakdown and tear-your-heart-straight-out-of-your-chest manipulation of love is so draining and difficult that it's hardly portrayed in it's rawest profile in fear of polarizing it's audience.

enter blue valentine. unafraid to be vulnerable or excruciatingly harsh, the film shines despite all of it's interior darkness and stands alone in it's brave and heartbreaking storytelling. and there aren't enough adjectives to compliment the performances from ryan gosling and michelle williams

it's on redbox now. definitely worth the dollar price tag.
and if you have patience to watch all of the deleted scenes, you can watch ryan gosling gag himself, yack and then make out with michelle for a good 5 minutes after.

you always hurt the one's you love.
