"Maybe I've seen too many movies, you know, love at first sight. What do you think about love at first sight? You think you can love somebody just by looking at them? But the thing is man, I felt like I knew her, you ever get that feeling? She just seems different, you know? I don't know, I just got a feeling about her. You know when a song comes on and you just gotta dance?"
"In my experience, the prettier a girl is, the more nuts she is, which makes you insane."
"I feel like men are more romantic than women. When we get married we marry, like, one girl, 'cause we're resistant the whole way until we meet one girl and we think I'd be an idiot if I didn't marry this girl she's so great. But it seems like girls get to a place where they just kinda pick the best option... 'Oh he's got a good job.' I mean they spend their whole life looking for Prince Charming and then they marry the guy who's got a good job and is gonna stick around."
"You made a promise to me, you said for better or for worse, you said that, you said it. It was a promise. Now this is my worse, ok this is my worse. But I'm gonna get better. You just gotta give me a chance to get better."
- Blue Valentine (2010) by Derek Cianfrance
"Blue Valentine", named after the Tom Waits album, it's Derek Cianfrance's film debut, a look at the past and present of a couple, trying to remember what went wrong. Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams give us two heartbreakingly truthful performances, that led them to multiple nominations for their tour-de-force portrayal of a husband and wife in this touching drama. The excellence of the film also lies in a great script, the powerful and gorgeous photography, and the beautiful soundtrack by Grizzly Bear, featuring the multi-talented Ryan Gosling too.
"Baby, I've got silver and I've got gold, but when push comes to shove,
this is getting old."
