Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind Reviews

Cole Smithey

Michel Gondry tries to channel Fellini and ends up irrigating faulty plumbing.

Even if the script had been more accessible, it's doubtful whether its ultra-high concept will connect with general audiences.

What's lacking is what the movie is ostensibly about: the heart that so often leads us to fall in love with the wrong people at the wrong time.

It is not as fiendishly cunning as Being John Malkovich or as savage as Adaptation, but the surreal romantic twists are pure Kaufman at his neurotic worst

Kaufman is one of the most ingenious screenwriters in Hollywood...the clouds gather with Michel Gondry's breathlessly hyperactive direction.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Min feels like writer Charlie Kaufman going back to the same well one too many times.

Gondry still lags behind Jonze in rendering cohesive stories and human connection from Kaufman's adventures in self-analysis.

By the third act, the glow has worn off, and the film plods towards its inescapable finale with deadly familiarity.

Film Threat

The reality is that Hollywood is such an idea poor place Kaufman tends to get more credit than he deserves for work which only occasionally rises above the level of mind games and showy sleight of hand.

As a friend joked, 'If you peel away the movie's postmodern tricks, what you're left with is about as profound as a Hugh Grant movie.'

Great concept but mediocre movie.

One Guy's Opinion

Another unpleasantly glib, shallow demonstration of Kaufman's self-satisfied cleverness, further marred by failed pretensions to profundity about romantic destiny.

The disappointment I felt at the end of Eternal Sunshine was almost crushing, simply because there were sections of it that were as daring in their emotional directness as anything I've seen in years.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind wants to be a bittersweet comedy about erotic loss and memory loss. But it doesn't have the heart or brain.

Like footprints in the sand of a Montauk beach, no one leaves much of an impression.

There is little charm in the coupling and almost no erotic intimacy, just a series of nerve-racking conversational collisions.

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.

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

It is an enchanting clutter of love and reason that will only appeal to the audience willing to take the time to see the movie and then think about it later.

Eternal Sunshine never betrays its ambitions and never lets you down, offering a complex message about love and human relations that's as universal as it is refreshing.
