Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

Anyone seen this movie? I just watched it tonight. Seriously messed up movie. That's not to say I didn't like it. I thought it was brilliant. Four stars. I just had to think a LOT about everything I saw to make sense of it all, since the events are out of chronological order. I didn't QUITE 'get' all of it at first, but I still gave it four stars. After further thinking about it, I 'get' it now and maintain my four star rating. And Jimy Carrey is seriously underrated as a serious actor.

I love that movie; one of my favourites from last year. Jim Carrey has a real rarely-explored gift for melancholy IMO.

Jim Carrey is great in it!!! you're right namkcuR - He is underrated as a serious actor...

And the movie - loved it, a bit complicated though but that is exactly why I liked it

Very well-made. However, as someone who is in a seriously loving relationship - it really disturbed me to think about erasing someone from my mind that I care about so much. So to that end, I didn't like it and found it tortuous.

I just watched this movie for the first time the other night. I loved it. I am not a Jim Carrey fan but this film made me change my mind. Kate Winslet was awesome.

I hate movies that are out of order.

I love Jim Carrey but this one didnt do it for me.

I had to put off watching this movie for the longest time after my 2-3 year relationship ended in 2004. I thought it would be too difficult to watch but I think I 'll appreciate it now!

I'm a very mellow person IRL and I couldn't stand the constant histrionics of Kate Winslet's character. She really irritated me, and whereas the movie managed to convince me that she really wanted Jim Carrey's character, I could find no believable reason for why he wanted her. God, what a headache.

It's a decent film, although I think in a way it's gimmicky and representative of what people think should be a good movie made in 2004 - but it so obviously tries to be exactly that so that it comes across as transparent.
