The three things that hit you instantly about Baker’s photography or at least hit me instantly are the naturalness he seems to bring out of his subjects, the retro feel and the sense that there is a narrative to the photographs. It’s all very well taking pictures that look visually brilliant which Baker does but if there’s no sense of story that drags you into the photograph well there’s not much point, is there? And Baker in his work certainly doesn’t overlook this aspect. Possibly it’s the writer in me that loves a sense of narrative in everything.

Blue Valentine Movie Review!

Image

Last night I watched Blue Valentine starring Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams and directed and written by Derek Cianfrance. It is a film which was 12 years in gestation. The film splits between two time frames when Williams’ character Cindy and Gosling’s character Dean meet and ultimately the end of their relationship.

It was a brave and different movie to make and that has to be commended but as much as I’m all up for something different. I love original scripts, different also has to be good different and Blue Valentine didn’t really hold my interest. I found it a little dull. That doesn’t take away from the performances in it. Everyone acted their parts amazingly especially Williams and Gosling in the main roles and in a lot of their fight scenes it would take excellent acting to pull them off.

There was a few sexy moments in it. Michelle was quite lucky even though it was just acting. Hot Ryan Gosling and the very sexy Mike Vogel (Bobby) in one movie. Oh and the very handsome Ben Shenkman after her as Sam Feinberg. Happy days indeed! 🙂

It will be a film to some peoples’ tastes but it just wasn’t to mine.
