One of the best, and most original science fiction movies I've ever seen. It's deep with its message of how we want to hold onto our memories, even our bad ones.

Ten years after its release, I finally see this movie. What else can I say. The film is thoughtful, elusive, and simply brilliantly done. The story, the performances by awesome cast, and the direction perfectly fit. Nice! Will probably watch this for the second time in less than ten years.

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 …

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 … 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 …
