Blue Valentine - a rehashed Catherine Wheel?

Postby Buglet on January 6th, 2011, 12:05 am

Oh dear. Armond White, of the New York Press, really doesn't like Blue Valentine. But is it really The Catherine Wheel Returns??

Derek Cianfrance, writer-director of Blue Valentine, and his collaborating actors Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling, show themselves to be sexual and artistic naifs. They try reinventing The Catherine Wheel, the 1981 David Byrne-Twyla Tharp ballet about spiritual dysfunction, by using the unsophisticated terms of sophomoric film students: "Hey, lets improvise a couple's emotional misconnections, their sexual competition and inherited ideas about relationships."
