Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind plot

"You can erase someone from your mind. Getting them out of your heart is another story."

Joel (Jim Carrey) is shocked that his girlfriend Clementine (Kate Winslet) has had all her memories of their rather tumultuous relationship erased. Desperate, he contacts the inventor of the conscious process, Dr. Howard Mierzwiak (Tom Wilkinson), in order to have Clementine erased from his own memory. But as Joel's memories of Clementine begin to fade, he begins to rediscover his love for her. He tries with all his might to counteract the process that takes place deep in his brain.

What an absolutely horrible shitty movie.

What everyone sees in this, I don't understand. It must be because the story is not told linearly, it always does well.

And yet, this movie had everything to be good. Kaufman at the pen, a famous clip director in the chair, Carrey who can play a good role if necessary. Too bad it ended up in a bland, corny vehicle, with a series of child stars (with the Disney dwarf at the front), annoying music and art direction unworthy of a director of clips. It's always the wrong directors who make the switch (come on Mr Cunningham, please...).

Big mess that I don't want to waste any more words on, and just try to forget as soon as possible. 1* for only nice ideas and 1 nice scene (in the beach house).

Pretty brilliant. The mere fact that I don't get an allergic reaction from the romance shows that this movie really takes a different approach. The acting of Carrey and Winslet feels wonderfully realistic. And the plot, well, you just have to go along with it, it's still sci-fi in that regard. But if you do that, you will have a wonderful trip and you will really go along with Joel's experience. Take a moment to think about it, but in general this mindfuck is easy to follow. The editing is fine and a-chronological bits work well. Kaufman's crazy script (what a story that man actually writes!) is perfectly conveyed. The Dunst subplot is perhaps a bit redundant. Unique movie.

Went in here with quite high expectations given the score, but this was a big let down. Very weak and strange story that never got me into the film. Kate Winslet was the only positive thing about the film. So not recommended.
