Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind goes by like a fevered dream of love, but one you remember vividly, with profound pleasure.

At its core, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind could have been just another love story. Refracted through Kaufman's wonderfully weird prism, it's something truly memorable.

The result is a cinematic vagueness that makes the film less aesthetic yet more persuasive. This is how dreams really look: like reality, only less so.

Pretty fancy stuff, for a sci-fi romantic comedy.

It's a very Kaufmanesque narrative experiment, technically ingenious and sophisticated. It also looks like some lost comedy idea by Philip K Dick; you could call this film We Can Forget It for You Retail.

The latest and loveliest alternative universe created by Charlie Kaufman, America's most -- we should probably say only -- intellectually provocative screenwriter.

This outing from Kaufman's oddball imagination is wonderfully intriguing, often touching and typically convoluted.

This movie doesn't even try to be for everyone, but it will pierce some of you right in the heart. Give it a shot.

What follows will knock you silly, upending every single concept of storytelling that you're probably used to.

Kaufman's latest is a weird, visually woozy rom-com-in-reverse that charms, amuses and moves.

Jason Killingsworth
Paste Magazine

Don't be fooled by the glib, offhand nature of the film's surface demeanor. Kaufman's endearingly off-the-wall antics are pronounced as ever, but he's finally learning how to temper his humorous sport with something called humanistic spirit.

Imaginative, loopy romance is for adults only.

A surprisingly bittersweet love story at heart, Eternal Sunshine values the sum of experience, which in this case means a thorns-and-all openness to romantic possibilities.

The film entertains for the most part and gives us a set of marvellous performances from this outstanding cast, even if it doesn't quite reach the near-genius of Kaufman's other writings.

Kaufman and Gondry bring out all the weirdness of the premise, sometimes eliciting disbelieving laughter, sometimes taking us to odd, chilly places.

Walking into a theater with Charlie Kaufman on the screen is like volunteering for that wacky boat trip Willy Wonka took through the chocolate factory tunnel...

Works marvel after marvel in expressing the bewildering beauty and existential horror of being trapped inside one's own addled mind, and in allegorising the self-preserving amnesia of a broken but hopeful heart.

Eternal Sunshine is fresh, heartfelt and ultimately heartbreaking in its honest portrayal of a modern relationship.
