No matter if you loved or hated Blue Valentine, I think we all have to agree the most exciting part of the film is the titles. Fireworks, light, happiness, compassion — none of which we see at any stage later in the film. In fact, I think the title scene was the single most time that anything actually happened. But the titles say everything: they show love and excitement and non-vicious-passion of Cindy and Dean’s world before they fell out of love.
These titles are actually mesmerising, beautiful. Ryan Gosling doesn’t hurt either.
