Nate’s review published on Letterboxd:
flipping back and forth between present day and the past of their relationship took an emotional toll on me towards the end. it’s so heartbreaking to know what was filled with so much love in the beginning turns into a huge storm of emotion, and there’s nothing they could have done to prevent it. blue valentine is upsetting to say the least. with great performances from the cast, specifically michelle williams (God her acting in the hospital... too much) and great direction, blue valentine is a well crafted movie that will be in my heart for a while, hurting me.
