This weekend I saw Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Although I approached the movie with some trepidation because I was not in the mood to see Jim Carrey in his signature super-spaz mode, I was pleasantly surprised by his subdued performance and really enjoyed Charlie Kaufman's latest endeavor. I can imagine Charlie (yes, I'm on a first name basis with him) pitching the story-idea: "It's like Memento but without all the murder." The plot follows a backwards timeline much like Memento and Following which leaves the viewer trying to piece together the puzzle (how did the couple meet at first, why did the romance sour, what's up with that creepy, tall hobbit) after the movie is over. Me likey. For another blog-review, check out upyernoz's March 6th entry.
