Blue Valentine ★★★★★

i'm so thankful every single day this movie was made. it's heartbreaking, beautiful, real and wholeheartedly honest. there are so many moments that tear my heart out of my chest and make me feel hollow but somehow i always feel... idk... relieved? i think its because it feels almost like a palate cleanser you know after seeing so many overworked films this just brings me back down to earth. i think i also can't help but see my own parents in cindy and dean just how their young love really just didn't work out and they weren't right for each other at all so they just fell out of love after they had me. i hold this movie so close to my heart for all of these reasons and i think these are also the reasons why my mom won't rewatch it ever again
