Finally, my personal favorite, Kirsten Dunst as Mary. . However, as he watches his memories of her fade away, he realizes that he still loves her, and may be too late to correct his mistake. But it works so well. Is our life just a sequencing of memories? I used to find his so ordinary in his acting, but here, Ruffalo is so relatable and interesting. She acts like someone who is on the rebound from a sudden, broken relationship.
He goes to a hypnotherapist to expunge her from his memory, so he can move on and get his life back. At some point, he has second thoughts about erasing and removing their blooming friendship from his memory. Remember your love and appreciate what you have. She proposed marriage and after a few days exclaimed she wanted to have a baby. However, as he watches his memories of her fade away, he realises that he still loves her, and may be too late to correct his mistake. Gondry's direction marks a true show of film making prowess. I think it will make for a pleasant memory.
Never knew this kne existed. Boy Meets girl, Boy loses girl watch their relationship disintegrate before your very eyes! The storyline is original and more complicated than this brief review describes. You want him to be happy. The way they coalesce hook up is almost to good to be true. Mary's story is perhaps the saddest of all the character arcs in Eternal Sunshine. I found her at first hyperactive, then so very human as it's slowly apparent how insecure she is with her own life.
She is so charming and sweet. He made that up off the top of his head to impress her. I hope you watch Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. What if this neurological capability was within the realm of medical science! Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind captures our feelings in a moment. She is a wondrous light in his mundane life of work and not work.
Carrey is the ultimate empathetic every man in this film. You don't even recognize Jim Carey. Charlie Kaufman's script is an appeal to human emotion and empathy as any film I have ever been lucky enough to have seen. It must be noted, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind has, perhaps, the most astoundingly seamless film edits of any movie ever. Any who this movie hand me on a literal mind coaster. So few movies are truly original.
He's a joy to watch and you really feel for him by the end. But if you recognize original and magical. Does boy want girl back? Clementine Kruczynski, aka Tangerine Kate Winslet is fearless and uninhibited when it comes to latching on to her new beau, Joel Barish Jim Carrey. Each scene is a mini-masterpiece in itself. She plays the fun loving Mary, whose secret changes the way people feel forever. He is as creepy as he was in Sin City, but with a subtle flair of subdued insanity. Don't get me wrong, I love Carrey and I like some of his movies but, he's just, uh, very enthusiastic.
Never expected this movie to be like this. She is enchanting on screen and you cannot help, but sympathize for her character. Aside from the main themes and morale of the movie, the supporting cast is incredibly strong and subtle. Absolutely immaculate editing, gorgeous cinematography, and superbly refined directing from Michel Gondry. He portrays Joel, a depressed and lonely man, who meets Clementine. And his counterpoint in love. But man this, I'll tell you.
If I could digress into a particular scene, they are laying supine on frozen Lake Montauk in N. Mark Ruffalo is hilarious and goofy as the lovable mad scientist. Joel sees her as exciting, flashy, and a lot of fun, a riot. The deliberate manipulation of the audience through his magical framework is awe inspiring. Tom Wilkinson is the calm and well mannered genius who profession is the erasure of dreams. Their chemistry seems off at first, but you realize they are perfect strangers in this lovely movie. I think it's evident by the end that his character is trying to escape his emotions just as much as any of his patients.
She is a risk taker and an adrenaline driven thrill seeker that takes Joel on a wild ride and out of his comfort zone. What a sad sack, lost. I usually don't watch drama or romantic movies. Elijiah Wood is an obsessed man derailing the lives of those around him. I don't know if you can call their relationship love. It's so well done and obvious that each cut, angle, and frame is purposefully edited to perfection.
