ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND

 

The stage was set in the first few minutes of this movie by laying the story out, only revealing the film hasn't even started yet.

At this point forward, the audience is putty in the writer's creative hands, guiding the story through a mirage of past, present, and future points of view.

You'll find yourself on the edge of your seat in anticipation. I think this is really a clever and new approach of presenting a love/comedy/drama.

Don't miss this theatrical experience.

What? Another film about the consequences of memory erasure!

Jim Carrey plays it straight (well, sort of) in this cleverly written, mind-altering, romantic comedy from the demented mind of Charlie Kaufman (the same man who brought us Adaptation, and Being John Malkovitch).

It's a backwards relationship movie that shows you that sometimes you have to look back to see what you are missing right now.

The star attempts to have memories of his ex-girlfriend erased from his mind in this twisty, romantic, offbeat comedy.

The idea of blanking out every last thought of a failed romance has a lighthearted spookiness about it.

The screenwriter toys with the boundaries between reality and fantasy, and makes some probing points about the softness of memory and the importance of the past in defining the future.
