News & Interviews for Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
Critic Reviews for Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
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.
The latest and loveliest alternative universe created by Charlie Kaufman, America's most -- we should probably say only -- intellectually provocative screenwriter.
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.
Audience Reviews for Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
Finally got round to watching this movie from begining to end and i thoroughly enjoyed it!
I love seeing Jim Carrey in more serious roles rather than his usual annoying goofey self and even when his goofeyness was required in this movie it was toned down quite dramatically! Its a great cast, i love the concept and is just an entertaining and slightly confusing at the start which keeps you thinking!
Everything about this movie is beautiful, its beautifully written, beautifully acted and a lovely and beautiful concept with a strong meaning as well! Well worth the watch!
Wonderful picture featuring a brilliant and surprising performance by Jim Carrey Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is a brilliant affair that boasts a very well crafted story and performances. Mixing elements of drama and fantasy, the film is a refreshing take on your traditional romantic film, and it delivers something totally different. I really enjoyed the film's path on how they handled the material, and Carrey delivers the performance of his career with this one. Since Jim Carrey is known for comedic work, this is a film that proves he is able to act in other genres of film. With this film, he breaks new ground in his career, and definitely makes the film that much better. The story itself is well thought out, and the direction is great as well. This is a terrific, entertaining picture that delivers an engaging two hours of solid entertainment. If you're looking for a well constructed drama that is original and not just another rehash, then this is the film watch. I honestly didn't expect much from this film, but I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. The film might surprise skeptics, and it most certainly impressed me. I thought that this ranked as one of Jim Carrey's best, and it was nice to see him take on a more dramatic role as well. To me, it's always interesting to see comedy actors take on serious roles as we don't know what to expect, and in the case of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, we get a surprising, well delivered performance from Jim Carrey that compliments a wonderful story.
A unique, artistically--and brilliantly---shot film, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is perfectly cast and acted, and features a cleverly written script. One of the film's strengths is the various dynamics that ultimately come together beautifully, as well as its thought-provoking, ingenious use of chronology. A thoroughly enjoyable, must-see film.
