There is another couplet in Eloisa to Abelard that perhaps has a bearing on the Gondry-Kaufman film: "Of all affliction taught a lover yet,/'Tis sure the hardest science to forget."

Touching, tragic, inspiring, funny, hopeful, and, most importantly, powerfully romantic.

[The film] shows us that all real relationships are worth remembering, and that the connections we have with others are something worthy enough to fight for.

A spectacular film that dwelves into a primitive feeling more authentically than any other film. A modern classic. [Full review in Spanish].

[Jim Carrey's] vulnerability is stunning, and he has channeled his comedic physicality into a tightly controlled performance that makes the absurd completely believable.
April 15, 2020
Without a doubt, one of the best films of all-time regarding love, heartbreak and hope. [Full review in Spanish]

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is a whirlwind of emotions, and it is the kind of romance that is just grounded enough, in reality, to inspire and incite, but whimsical enough to deserve its own special place in the genre's history.

From the opening frame to the closing credits, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is unmistakably the work of a true creative genius.

It's a surprising, clever sci-fi twist, even as the relationship drama it dredges up doesn't feel at all like science fiction.

...genius, or at least fascinating. [Full review in Spanish]
June 16, 2016
The wacky sight gags and psycho-drama slapstick is tinged with melancholy and regret ...

One of the most insightfully sad explorations of the human drive for love since Annie Hall concluded that we need the eggs.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind goes by like a fevered dream of love, but one you remember vividly, with profound pleasure.
May 30, 2014
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.
May 30, 2014
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.
May 30, 2014
Pretty fancy stuff, for a sci-fi romantic comedy.
May 30, 2014
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.
May 30, 2014
The latest and loveliest alternative universe created by Charlie Kaufman, America's most -- we should probably say only -- intellectually provocative screenwriter.
May 30, 2014
This outing from Kaufman's oddball imagination is wonderfully intriguing, often touching and typically convoluted.
May 30, 2014
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.
