"Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind" by Yojimbo

A shy young man finds that his ex girlfriend has physically erased their relationship from her memory and decides to follow suit. Featuring a screenplay by the king of quirky Charlie Kaufman, Eternal Sunshine is that rarest of beasts; a Hollywood film that is smart, creative and above all, original. Visually very inventive, there are some really nice touches throughout the film often used with great subtlety in the background and it's a very intelligent deconstruction (literally) of a relationship and it's decline. Kate Winslet is every over-educated under-achieving heterosexual man's wet dream (particularly if you have a penchant for neurotic booze hounds with bad dye jobs...*ahem*) and Carrey is at his least irritating, offering by far his best performance. Despite having one foot in th...

Best Love story ever!!!

This movie opened my eyes! Its the film that showed me that Love is more than just a word. Joel (Played by Jim Carrey) is a shy and lonely man, who's real joy in life is finding Clementine (Kate Winslet) a women who's personality is the extreme in opposite. So to make a long story short, Thier relationship ends bitterly. As a result, Clementine decides to erase Joel from her memory. (by a medical mind erasing procedure) to mitigate her pain and heartache throughout her relationship with Joel. Joel ends up discovering this decides to undergo the procedure himself out of spite and revenge. And then we all see Joel's memories of his relationship with Celementine, memories of love compassion and innocence. We see Joel has regretted ever udnergoing the operation. He realizes the underlying mo...

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind review

Jim Carrey as the shy Joel and Kate Winslet as the eclectic hair color chameleon Clementine. Romantic story that deals with erasing people's memories. The direction of the film was very unique, using various focal points and images as if you were really in the mind of Joel Barish. Soundtrack, cinematography and acting was superb. Screenplay was likewise enjoyable. A few lines from the movie: Joel Barish - "Constantly talking isn't necessarily communicating. I could die right now, I'm just Ö happy. I've never felt that before. I'm just exactly where I want to be." Clementine Kruczynski - "I'm not perfect." Its very surprising to see Carrey perform well in dramatic scenes. As a veteran comedian, the comedic scenes are laughable. Winslet owned the part, very expressive and different...

"I wish I'd stayed." "I wish I'd stayed too."

Gondry and Kaufman combine to do something extraordinary--they make the audience want to believe that love is real. Not a fabrication of hormones and the instinct for self-perpetuation. Not a whimsical figment of our collective imaginations. But something quantifiable, and as much a necessity as food or shelter.

Kate Winslet proves again why she is our greatest living young actress, making the free-spirited Clementine a fully-formed, endearing human being with whom any man would fall in love. Such roles so easily curdle into something unbearably twee (see Juno, for example), but Winslet eschews ironic dismemberment and manages to articulate a blue-haired sprite who is also grounded and accessible. And as in The Truman Show, Jim Carrey demonstrates his not insignificant talent for ...

A feast for the eye and the soul

This is probably at the top of my list as one of the weirdest film Iíve seen today. But in a good way that is. With visionary director Michel Gondry casting his magic and putting in film, I was definitely amazed. I really wasnít expecting Jim Carrey to pull it off, but he did. It was an enigmatic performance, perhaps Oscar worthy even. His better half in the movie performed extremely well to. Kate Winslet was not just eye candy, but she is the soul of this movie. Story wise, I was captivated by idea of removing a specific memory of a person inside the mind. If this was possible, I would definitely avail this service. Letís just say Iíve had my own share of bad memories. Acting job like I said was superb, especially with an ensemble cast. Visually it was stunning and frame by frame was a m...

Wild and fun

Twisted, obscure, and utterly brilliant. This is a cool movie that doesn't follow any of the traditional rules of making a good movie. Many of the people that saw this movie thought it was convoluted because it didn't tell a story from beginning to end. The movie starts at almost the end, jumps back to the beginning, then runs around in the middle for a while, then it moves in about 10 other directions before it brings you back to what was supposed to be the present day, and finally ties itself off with an ending... and that is exactly what it is, an ending, not the ending, just an ending. I really thought it was well done, its one of those movies that you have to pay close attention to the little things, and the rest of the movie will fall into place. If you are looking for mindless ente...
