Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

I saw this on Wednesday and loved it, the idosyncratic writing of Charlie Kaufman really gels with me. The film is a bizarre romantic comedy in many ways and Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet make a great couple in a difficult and turbulent relationship.

If only Carrey could make more films like this and Man on the Moon and I would be a very happy man.

The supporting cast were great as well particularly Elijah Wood who escapes from his hobbithood by playing a slightly creepy guy who is trying to seduce Clementine by using stuff from her memories that have been erased.

IMDb’s page for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Again questions are raised in my mind concerning memory and the importance of integrity of the memories in your head. Losing parts of your memory robs you of more than you might imagine. I think you lose a part of your personality with everything that is erased.
