Genre: COMEDY VIDEO

Screenwriters rarely develop a distinctive voice that can be recognized from movie to movie, but the ornate imagination of Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation) has made him a unique and much-needed cinematic presence. In Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, a guy decides to have the memories of his ex-girlfriend erased after she's had him erased from her own memory--but midway through the procedure, he changes his mind and struggles to hang on to their experiences together. In other hands, the premise of memory-erasing would become a trashy science-fiction thriller; Kaufman, along with director Michel Gondry, spins this idea into a funny, sad, structurally complex, and simply enthralling love story that juggles morality, identity, and heartbreak with confident skill. The entire cast--Jim Carrey, Kate Winslet, Kirsten Dunst, Elijah Wood, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Wilkinson, and more--give superb performances, carefully pitched so that cleverness never trumps feeling. A great movie. --Bret Fetzer

  • Worth the money!
    I just rented this.
    Simply put, this is a great movie.
    It is very strange but you will love it.
    I would categorize it as a Surrealistic Romantic Comedy.
    When it was over we wanted to watch it again but we had no time.
    Great Movie!...more info
  • Far from a spotless movie
    Perhaps my mistake was watching this immediately after "Stranger than Fiction," an equally overworked, derivative premise about a repressed, unfulfilled personality who requires not so much the extermination of his pedestrian self as the recovery of his more vital self (i.e. he needs the right, "spontaneous," life-endowed woman). The prototype is Chris Marker's 1962 masterpiece, "La Jetee," a film that's as profound as it is fresh, provocative, and haunting. The problem with these later spin-offs is not their lack of originality. Adrian Lyne's "Jacob's Ladder" is one of several films to approach "La Jetee"'s greatness. But these most recent efforts are low-budget formula pictures with big-budget stars that unfortunately lend validity to "Chick Flick" as a dismissive term for the whole sub-genre.

    The performances are often of Oscar-worthy quality. But I don't recall Rosalind Russell ("His Girl Friday") or Katherine Hepburn ("Adam's Rib") ever being wasted in scripts so unworthy of their talents as are Emma Thompson and Kate Winslett. Of the two present films, "Stranger Than Fiction" is the better-made movie, but "Eternal Sunshine" is more ambitious and multi-dimensional. The decidedly anti-intellectual message of "Stranger" is: Smelling and eating fresh-baked cookies not only satisfies the palate but heals the incomplete soul more surely than the agonized meanings of great literature. "Spotless Mind" might be said to test this thesis by offering the viewer quotes from Nietszche ("Blessed are the forgetful for they get the better even of their blunders") and Alexander Pope ("How happy is the blameless vessel's lot/The world forgetting by the world forgot/Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind").

    The problem is that the quotes are spoken out of context, as if the characters of the film (and their creator) are clueless to the irony of the quoted statements, both of which condemn forgetfulness and deride the notion of a "spotless mind." As if it weren't bad enough that the writers of the screenplay make mockery of Chris Marker's achievement, they misrepresent Nietszche and Alexander Pope, both of whom prefer to the sunshine of the spotless mind the mind that is alive "because" it remembers the past, however painful or imperfect it may be. (How often I ponder the question of which is worse: the destruction of the world's great literary texts or the distorted, gross and even dangerous interpretations to which such texts, including the Bible, are subjected by tone-deaf, unimaginative, utterly "selfish" readers.)

    Both films overstay their welcome, attempting closure and not finding it. At least "Spotless Mind" provokes genuine reflection, and perhaps some minimal self-scrutiny at that. Were the writers of the film as unashamedly didactic and verbal in their exit strategy as the makers of "Stranger Than Fiction," I would have offered them the following (by Kierkegaard): "When one has once fully entered the realm of love, the world - no matter how imperfect - becomes rich and beautiful, it consists solely of opportunities for love."...more info

  • post modern tripe
    When I first saw "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," I thought I must be the only person alive who absolutely despised it from start to finish. It's a cheap date movie that everyone has blown up into some kind of piece of art simply because it is post modern. Here are the reasons I dislike it:
    1. It's a sci-fi date movie for people who are sympathetic with post modernism, nothing more. In that sense it doesn't go much beyond "50 First Dates" in terms of artistic credibility.
    2. The characters are utterly selfish and shallow. A memory wiping device could have been used in a poignant way for people who have suffered genuine trauma and a real point could possibly (though I doubt it) have been made. Rather we get this, "here's a part of my past that is slightly inconvenient. I know, I'll erase my memory because I don't want to have learned from this experience." That whole crap about I've been in love and therefore think I have suffered is utter nonsense. Try being raped some time.
    3. This isn't so much for the film as for its rabid fans. In what way is this film "independent?" The trailers aired on NATIONAL television, the film itself is a household name, and every actor/actress in it is a household name. "Independent film" means independent of vast studio resources. This film isn't.
    4. In general I think Kaufman is going way too far with post modernism. The search for meaning is greatly simplified if we believe it to exist--and it does!! Just not in any of his horrible films.

  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
    Relationships can end terribly and if they do, most of the people involved want to forget that it ever happened. Well, what if that was an option for separated couples? What if people could actually erase their memory of a failed relationship and partner? And most importantly, would it be worth it? "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" asks these questions as the film wonderfully and cleverly unfolds. Never have I seen a film that I and others can easily relate to. This film is wonderfully acted, sports amazing direction, and is extremely touching when it comes to its characters and subject matter.

    Joel Barish (Jim Carrey) learns that his girlfriend, Clementine (Kate Winslet) has had their relationship erased from her memory by Lacuna Inc, run by Dr. Mierzwiak (Tom Wilkinson). Not knowing what to do, he decides to have the process done as well, wanting Clementine out of his mind for good. Once Mierzwiak and his fellow workers, Stan (Mark Ruffalo), Patrick (Elijah Wood), and Mary (Kirsten Dunst) have begun to delete Joel's memory of the relationship one frame at a time, Joel discovers that that there are aspects of the relationship that he wants to keep. Thus, he journeys through his mind as he tries to preserve as much memory of Clementine as he can, hoping she won't be erased forever.

    "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" is a film that is rare in Hollywood these days. It's engaging, touching, funny, realistic, and most of all, original. Expertly written by Charlie Kaufman and Michel Gondry, it's a film that expresses how important relationships are regardless of how much they may hurt at times.

    Jim Carrey (best known for his roles in "Dumb and Dumber" and "Ace Ventura" films) truly shines here as Joel. From desperate to getting rid of Clementine to desperate trying to keep her, he handles it perfectly. The chemistry Carrey has with Kate Winslet is genuine and real. Speaking of Winslet, her quirky Clementine is the ying to awkward Joel's yang. Again, perfect. All the other performances are great as well and really help round out the film.

    This is a Michel Gondry meaning one can expect something visually unique and original, and he doesn't disappoint in this department. The story moves at a brisk pace and never in linear fashion. It's quite complex and should be watched more than once to truly appreciate what is happening. Gondry utilizes subtle, but amazing special effects to portray Joel's crumbling mind and his use of color is outstanding. Without his direction, the film wouldn't be as great as it is.

    Michel Gondry's, "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," is a film that needs to be seen by everyone. A complex, original story filled with lively characters and a relatable situation. Most importantly though, it's moved me in ways that films rarely can. And that's saying something. ...more info
  • Failed to impress
    I loved all of the actors in that movie. It disappointed me so much when I started to watch it. I was expecting an amazing movie, but instead it bored me and made me fall asleep....more info
  • Sort of brilliant, sort of stupid
    I wanted to like this, as I liked the Malkovich movie so much, but I'm afraid it just isn't that good. The problem for me was that, despite some truly wonderful, strange images (something like 80% of the movie takes place in Carrey's head while he's asleep and supposedly being deprogrammed of his memories of his girlfriend), what's delivered to us at the end is a very simplistic message: it's hard to live with someone. I guess what I'm saying is that the stakes are too low here. That question -- how do you make love stay, since people will inevitably get on each others' nerves -- is pretty realistic; the film then yokes it to a very Philip K. Dick-ian premise of a company that can selectively erase memories (the company's name is "Lacuna"). It's unclear to what extent this is supposed to be humor, but it's certainly absurd enough that we're unlikely to take it too seriously, even if it seems the actors are (and Jim Carrey does a whole lot of emoting). All this adds up to a story that is interesting in lots of ways, but just doesn't hang together tonally, or intellectually. I rarely get bored watching movies, but I was checking my watch about an hour into this one. It's confusing to watch, and I think unecessarily so. It's just that if the story-telling were less disjointed, the underlying banality would be apparent. ...more info
  • A great movie, in great visual quality
    Eternal Sunshine is on a list of movies that I love but never got around to buying on DVD. When I see a movie from that list on HD DVD, I usually spring for it.

    The visual quality here was very good. I have not dug into the extra content much though.

    For the movie itself..
    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is a fantastic story about love, envy, heartbreak, and the other stuff that comes from relationships. Jim Carrey is very good as the meek Joel. Kate Winslet is also good as the scattered Clementine.

    This movie should be watched every year on February 14th....more info
  • great movie

  • Beautiful, poetic, and funny
    I'm a big fan.

    It poses a real question, how important are our memories to us? They are a part of us, the foundation of our personality. If there were a machine to erase certain memories from your mind are there any you'd want taken away? I'm sure that there are, but should you.

    We've all been in serious relationships that have come to pass and like Joel in the film eventually comes to realize is that its those memories bad or good that characterize us. In real life we do not find ourselves back with our old lovers ready to make the same mistakes all over again. We don't run back to them and say I love your flaws. The ending to the movie in a way demeans the true message of the film (but Hollywood does that).

    Can our lost love for those gone help us love those around us even more. Those memories of joyful times are worth holding onto. I read an article in National Geographic in which a doctor says (I'm paraphrasing) "often in romantic conquests we are trying to recreate the past, not establish a future."

    Does it have to be that way? Why can't we harness that same energy and put it toward creating new memories to rival those we love so much. By relishing those memories of the past can't we create hope for the future. I have loved, do love, and hopefully will continue to love. What I hope for is to love the way I once loved.

    How happy is the blameless vestal's lot!
    The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
    Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
    Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd;
    Labour and rest, that equal periods keep;
    "Obedient slumbers that can wake and weep;"
    Desires compos'd, affections ever ev'n,
    Tears that delight, and sighs that waft to Heav'n.
    Grace shines around her with serenest beams,
    And whisp'ring angels prompt her golden dreams.
    For her th' unfading rose of Eden blooms,
    And wings of seraphs shed divine perfumes,
    For her the Spouse prepares the bridal ring,
    For her white virgins hymeneals sing,
    To sounds of heav'nly harps she dies away,
    And melts in visions of eternal day. ...more info
  • Better than I thought it would be....
    3.5 stars. Renting this despite the fact that my best friend hated this movie, I was pleasantly surprised that I actually liked this movie. Definitely more of a art-house sort of feature, I was nevertheless intrigued by this movie's premises, just a tad bit underwhelmed by the execution. I like Kate Winlet, but found her character kooky for kooky sake just a little under developed. Still, I agree that it is an orignal piece and a different spin on romantic comedies, even if in this case you don't quite connect with these people as a couple. Overall, it's worth your wild to take a look at this film....more info
  • Pleasing and original

  • You don't know what you got....till you lose it

    I've never been a big fan of Jim Carrey....the guy is just a little too mainstream, too glib, and too cocky most of the time for my taste.

    Having said that, in this film, he actually plays a pretty likeable character.

    The story is about a guy and his girlfriend who separately decide they want to erase each of their memories of the other. This process is supposed to be painless and "invisible" to the patient, but for some reason, Carrey's character, Joel, experiences many of his memories of his girlfriend as they're being erased, and tries desparately, but unsuccessfuly, to hold on to them.

    The "undoing" of Joel's memories is often surreal and mildly disturbing. In the end, as fate would have it, both Joel and his girlfriend meet again, now without the memories of each other.

    The movie does a nice job of conveying the message that it's easy to become complacent in a relationship....maybe to think that "the grass is greener somewhere else".

    All too often, it's not until later that one realizes what one had till it's gone....more info
  • Carrey at his best
    If Jim Carrey is wondering what to do with himself, he needs to go back to material like this. He is a seriously underrated actor (sneaking in that vulnerable admiration of Courtney Cox in Ace Ventura - Ace Ventura!) since he is mostly a comedian. It's easy enough to cry in this world, but anyone who can see humor and express it personifies what it means to rise above.

    ANYWAY, I hope Jim Carrey tunnels into the independent film world. He's probably exhausted his rubber-face stage, but anything off-beat and insightful will re-launch his career.

    Everyone was wonderful in this movie, no scene was wasted. Really, for everyone in the cast this was their best work. ...more info
  • Worst movie ever
    This movie is about two losers trying to find love and meaning in life between their loser lives. Obviously, a hopeless cause. I have never seen a worse, more stupid movie in my life. I would give it zero stars if I could....more info
  • I Just Remembered That I Don't Want To Forget...
    I can understand casting Kate Winslet (Heavenly Creatures, Sense And Sensibility, Titanic) in a love story, but Jim Carrey (Ace Ventura, Dumb And Dumber, The Truman Show)?? All I could think of was his many years of insane comedic roles. Then, I heard that ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND had a sci-fi angle, and I figured it would have to be a total disaster. I was wrong. Winslet and Carrey's Clementine and Joel are absolutely endearing and believable. They go together like bread and butter, easily convincing me that these damaged characters truly love each other. The whole memory-erasure thing is well done and adds a nice, bizarre twist to the procedings. If you look at my reviews, you'll see very few love stories, but this one is a masterpiece of comedy, romance, and a completely off-kilter atmosphere. If you enjoy movies like SLAUGHTERHOUSE FIVE or 12 MONKEYS, and a bit of romance doesn't terrify you, then ESOTSM will satisfy. Highest recommendation... ...more info

  • Moving And Intelligent, Exploring Love in an Unconventional Way
    "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" is a fantastic film, but that's not surprising. I've come to expect excellence from Charlie Kaufman, who always makes seemingly unfilmable plots into a brilliant screenplay. Michel Gondry, who directed Human Nature, directs with sensitivity and ambition, making the visual effects of memories being lost look realistic. The casting choices were unusual but perfect, allowing a group of talented actors to step out of their comfort zones and show how good they truly are. The leads, Jim Carey and Kate Winslet, are perfectly chosen. Carey plays the quiet, intelligent, Kaufman-like guy who doesn't know how to interact with others with Winslet playing the arty, rough, daring girl who opens up his world and shatters it down the road with an impulsive decision. The supporting cast, Kirsten Dunst speficially, also give wonderful performances. Such great work was put into this from all ends, and the result was a truly wonderful film.

    I wouldn't say that "Eternal Sunshine" is as brilliant as Kaufman's Adaptation, but it is more universal. I'm partial to Adaptation because, as a screenwriter myself, the way Kaufman delves into that pain and longing and frustration a writer experiences rang so true to me, whereas "Eternal Sunshine" is a film that is not really specific to anyone. It's about love, what people mean to each other, how deeply the memories we have effect us, and even destiny. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll be intrigued, and you'll certainly leave the film with the intention to see it again. A great movie.

  • Life is about your relationship with your inner demons
    A strange movie about memory. Jim Carry is an unlovable schmuck, but for some reason he meets this wacky, gorgeous girl who's also quite horny. Slowly we get to see him interact with this girl, slowly we realize that there's much more behind their relationship. Why? Because it's a film from a Charlie Kaufmann script, where anything can happen. The couple has tender, happy moments that are very memorable (or memory-like) in an iconic kind of way. These are devices we refer back to, they make the movie feel like it is warm, comfortable, and we root for the heroes who struggle against what they are doing to themselves. Do they know that they were destined to be together? Things get weird - once we figure out what is going on, we get some back story. And then that back story gets back story. And then that back story also gets back story. And then the back story becomes the only story that there ever was. Because it's destiny. Complaints? None, really, although Kirstin Dunst acting horny is a bit awkward - she doesn't do horny well. Elijah Wood is good and creepy. And Jim Carrey - well, he can act... like a dork. I sometimes wonder how many people out there have so much time for resolving their inner demons that they don't really need to do regular things like work, cook, watch TV... ...more info
  • A BRUTALLY HONEST EXPLORATION OF LOVE
    I was not a fan of Jim Carrey's until I saw this film. I bought it because Charlie Kaufman wrote the screenplay, and I loved BEING JOHN MALKOVICH, and ADAPTATION. I have, to date, worn out two discs of THE ETERNAL SUNSHINE....

    The reason I love this movie so much is I've never seen one- ever- that was able to encapsulate with such terrible clarity, and frank eloquence, the nature of love, and ( specifically ) why we love. Though this masterpiece is extremely moving, hysterical, and lethally ascerbic, it is anything but cute.

    Jim Carrey should have gotten an Oscar for his performance, as the quiet, loner, Joel, and Kate Winslet was equally wonderful. The entire cast was superb, in fact. The direction, and cinematography was great, but the story was genius.

    Be smart, and get a little Sunshine.......more info
  • External Sunshine of the Spotless Mind: A thoughtful romantic story or a dark precautionary tale
    What an intriguing idea for a story, a man and woman meet, fall in love, fall out of love, have their memories of the whole love experience erased from their memories by a reverse brain mapping process. Who among us would not jump at the possibility of erasing painful or unpleasant memories and then be able move on with our lives with no recollection of anything associated with the person we had wiped from our memory.

    The lead characters in the story Joel and Clementine meet and fall and love, but after a period of few years they have drifted apart. Clementine discovers a doctor, who offers a service where he can erase memories of a particular person from your mind. Part of the process of forgetting is remembering. In order to map all the areas of the brain where the memories reside; the person wanting to forget has to collect all items associated with the person they are trying to forget. These items are shown to the individual, who is trying to forget and as they view the object a map of brain's reaction to the stimulus is created. Through the marvel of modern science this brain map is then used to execute a pinpoint destruction of the memories. Clementine successfully undergoes this procedure and completely erases any memories of Joel. Presumably, she is now free of the pain of a failed relationship. Joel is now a complete stranger to Clementine.

    Later, Joel is told by a friend that Clementine has had all memories of him erased and he becomes interested in doing the same with his memories of Clementine. We are then treated to the spectacle of Joel having all memories of Clementine zapped. The erasing is done while Joel is sleeping and the "technicians" drink, party and mess around during the process, in a startling display of indifference to what is being done to this person. Perhaps this is an indictment against the medical community that treats our mental anguish and discomfort with drugs or other means with a sort of detachment from what other damage may be inflicted on the individual.

    As we watch Joel's memories disappearing, through the use of clever cinematographic techniques, we see that Joel is desperately trying to keep the memories that are being removed. Other memories from his childhood become more vivid and we can clearly see that all his memories work together to create the person that is Joel. That is, I think, the precautionary tale of this film. We can not as humans selectively erase bad or painful memories from our minds without having an impact on our overall psyche. We may lose some pain, but we may also give up a piece of our soul or our being when we try to block out the bad and keep only the good. Our memories are complex and twisted and tied together in ways we do not fully comprehend, so be careful when you hit the erase button and enjoy the movie it will create its own map

  • Absolutely Fantastic
    I have never seen a movie that brings out so much emotion in me. Ever, Jim Carrey is a totally different person in this movie, and Kate Winslett is amazing. As usual. It's about a man who is erasing his ex girlfriend from his memory. We start out seeing how it ended, but as the movie goes on we get to witness all of Joel's wonderful memories with Clementine. As they go through the memories, they try to prevent her from being erased. This is a fantastic movie that should be in EVERY person's dvd library. If I could give it just one more half star then I totally would. ...more info

  • touching
    I've been a fan of Jim Carrey since I saw Ace Ventura as a kid... but I always knew he was capable of doing MORE. He's an amazing actor with a wide range of skills, and although he's great at comedy, it's nice to see him do something different. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind does have its funny moments, but overall it's a serious film. I really love it.

    As for the story itself, the main characters meet and have a rocky relationship because they're so different, but still very attached to each other. We've seen that before, right? But Carrey and Winslet still execute it beautifully... and then things stop being so predictable when Clementine (Winslet) decides to erase her boyfriend from her memory. Completely.

    From there, it becomes an emotional rollercoaster ride. I'm not convinced that anyone could play the parts better than the actors who did. This is really a great movie, especially if you're looking for something more than your average romance film. ...more info
  • One of my favorites!
    This is one of my favorite movies of all time! I saw this in the theater 3 times and own the DVD. Although it is an indie drama, I feel like everyone can enjoy this movie. The plot is very clever and not as strange as it sounds. It made me laugh, cry, and think--excellent. Underneath it all, the relationship is very true-to-life and reminds me of other indie love stories like Once and Time and Tide. If you are interested in a thoughtful, funny, and touching movie, you should see this! ...more info
  • Typical... But So Unique At The Same Time!
    Think about any movie that has to do with love... now tell me what happens in that movie? Boy & Girl meet, Boy & Girl fall in love, Boy & Girl break up, Boy & Girl get back together. This is one of those movies that does just that. But it does it differently. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind takes one of the most typical story lines, and makes it its own. The delivery of the movie is both unique and compelling! Definitely one of those movies that you can watch more then once without feeling like you know exactly what is going to happen next. It is more so one of those movies that keeps you thinking and wondering throughout the entire thing. I am still not 100% sure what happened throughout the movie, but as I watched the HD DVD extras, I learned from Jim Carrey that even he was confused at times exactly what scene was the future, and what was the past. The cinematography is a style all it's own. All of the special effects are in front of the camera. When someone disappears, it is usually something to do with a pane of glass reflecting in such a way that it tricks the camera. All of the shots in which Jim Carrey appears small, and Kate Winslet appears large, is all an optical illusion, no green screen here. At times it makes for the movie to be a little choppy, but it is really nice to see a movie that utilizes the in front of camera technique. The DVD extras are extremely well presented also, most being in HD. 5 out of 5 from this happy DVD owner....more info
  • What makes this movie so cool is the internal messages
    When I first heard this was a story of someone having their memory erased of someone they once loved, I thought...how are they going to pull this off! Well they did. Everyone from Charlie Kaufman to Michael Gondry, Jim Carrey actually playing someone real with depth for a change to Kate Winslet's brillant quirky multi hair color changing ex (or maybe not) girlfriend. Even the supporting cast...Kirsten Dunst, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Wilkinson and Elijan Wood. All were great. Mostly due to fine writing & direction.

    There were at least three messages I got from this mind twisting masterpiece.

    First...
    You can't erase things from your life. You have to learn to sift out the good & bad & even learn from mistakes.

    Second....
    Two people that were attracted to one another might become attracted once again (Ex. Not only the obvious leads, but even Kirsten Dunst was falling in love with the Doctor a second time around).

    Third.....
    Elijah Wood's idea of charming Clementine by using her previous boyfriend's gifts wasn't working.

    Then, towards the end when Jim & Kate realize what's happening & he says "Can we try again?" & she says "Yeah well at first it'll be great & then in a while we'll be fighting again"

    This is so true!

    People forget that opposites attract & often the differences that we once were charmed by can drive us crazy later.

    If people only sat back & thought through this common irritation, maybe there would be less divorce or break ups.


    What a great movie with imagination!

It takes a real look at how relationships are and how people fall in love, not like you see in other movies where you are like; "Yeah, right, that would never happen." In fact you could swear it was based off a relationship you are in, or a relationship you had in the past. The actors all play their parts quite well and you really get in to it, you really can understand and feel for the characters.
