The Broken Circle Breakdown

I have long been a fan of movies that show both the building up and then the tearing down of a relationship in different timelines.  Some reviews thought it was hard to follow because of this method of storytelling – I didn’t have an issue at all.  Based on the description I thought it would be more like Blaze or A Star Born but in the end it felt more like Blue Valentine.  The movie is gritty and the performances are excellent.  The music is as good as advertised – I actually wish there had been a little more of it.
