Blue Valentine

Ryan Gosling is superb and Michelle Williams is wonderful.

The arc of a relationship, so sharply drawn it hurts — the good and the bad, the highs and the lows, the ecstasy and joy and the ride along the ragged edge of despair.

All of them. Wonderful. Superb. Affecting. Painful. True.

Not into pain?

Skip the relationship and watch the movie, it's a lot cheaper and you'll get over it a whole lot faster.

Bad news: the test is designed for people 50 or older so if you're 49 or younger you'll just have to stay alive on your own till you qualify to take it.

The good news: you made it to 50.

The test was created by Dr. Sei Lee, an assistant professor at the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine, and published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2006.

Good thing I didn't take it then: if I had I might already be dead.
