Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind was an interesting film and has an even better title. I wasn't quite sure if I was 'getting' the timelines at the beginning and felt a bit disorientated but ended up being right. Nice film, one of the better romance films I've seen but I suspect I might enjoy it more in a few years, once I'm older. Best Jim Carrey performance I've seen though.
i have a 'must-watch' list, and this movie was on it.
This genre is not my first one, but the screenplay and the visuals are so great. i think it was very hard to make this movie. To watch it was quite entertaining.
Great cast, good director, "you did not see that coming"-ending -> 8/10
This is another tough one for me to rate. I loved the beginning and the end. I had trouble with the cacophony of the middle.
But, even so, I recognise the brilliance of the writing, the talent of the cast, and the complexity of the story. Brilliant SciFi/Romance premise, difficult to execute. It was nominated for 2 Oscars: one for Kate Winslet, and the one for that for which it won - Best Writing, Original Screenplay (2005).
What puzzled me for most of the movie, was how it managed to attract so talented a cast, but, by the end of the movie, I understood the unexpected depths there were to be mined.
I have to confess that as a Canadian I have always been embarrassed by my dislike, of what the world credits as comedic genius, of Jim Carey movies (he is a Canadian export). What stunned me about this movie, from the beginning, was how good a dramatic actor Jim is (who knew? I even found him handsome, once again, who knew?). And Kate Winslet as an erratic grunge, that was a hard sell. I didn't like the character Clementine throughout the movie, which made it hard to keep watching, especially when, at the centre of it, this is a love story. But, then, at the end of the film, her character resolves, bringing unexpected depths (thus the Oscar nomination). This movie was throwing inconsistencies at me from the beginning, and I was intrigued, irritated, bored, and finally, moved.
So, I'm sitting here, looking at the rating, as it taunts me to make a proclamation. So, I give it a 7.5 (brilliant in spasms) out of 10. I'll not watch it again, but, it does have something about it that is worthy of an attempt - it may be exactly what you were looking for.
"Troppi uomini pensano che io sia un'idea o che possa completarli o che possa riuscire a ridargli la vita. Ma io sono solo una ragazza incasinata che cerca la sua pace mentale..."
One of the best movies ever made. Easy to relate to, and it has amazing acting and one of the best stories ever.
What a powerfull movie.A truly masterpiece.Destiny is what it is and we can't change anything. 8.6/10!
Good idea and started well. The plot seemed to be stuck in a dreamscape of visual chasing or running, which still had an interesting effect but seemed non progressive.
I haven’t seen this since its release but it’s every bit the beautiful, low-key daydream I remembered. Gondry’s knack for bending reality combined with Kaufman’s simple yet profound script combine to make one of the best films of recent times (although, gulp… it’s 13 years old now…).
I had forgotten about the great score however, which turns into Oh My Darling, Clementine as the film progresses (Winslet’s character is called Clementine).
An unassuming, uncomplicated work of sci-fi genius.
An modern artistic triumph for all involved.
"Com'è felice il destino dell'incolpevole vestale!Dimentica del mondo, dal mondo dimenticata.Infinita letizia della mente candida!Accettata ogni preghiera e rinunciato a ogni desiderio"
"Io sono brutta?Quando ero piccola pensavo di sì. Non è possibile: l'ho detto e già piango. I grandi non capiscono quanto ci si può sentire soli da bambini, come se tu non contassi. Io avevo 8 anni e avevo dei giocattoli, delle bambole: la mia preferita era una bambola brutta che io chiamavo Clementine e la sgridavo in continuazione: non devi essere brutta, sii bella! Che assurdità. Come se, potendo trasformare lei, potessi per magia cambiare me stessa"
"Beati gli smemorati, perché avranno la meglio anche sui loro errori."
Picture 3.75 / 5, sound 4/5. Curious movie where Jim Carey's fine. The plot is original
Edição incrível. Um dos meus filmes favoritos
If you understand the concept of this movie, you can agree that it is one of the best love stories ever portrayed in film!
Ha, HA! What a KILLER movie. I absolutely loved it.
The final 15 minutes saved this movie for me. Apparently understand the deeper value, but even this came to me after traveling detours.
Wow amazing movie and great to see Jim Carrey playing a different kind of character!
Joel Barish: I could die right now, Clem. I'm just... happy. I've never felt that before. I'm just exactly where I want to be.
This film is fucking brilliant, clever, really well written! Loved it!
a straight 10. merrily merrily merrily merrily, life is but a dream

Very eclectic movie... absolutely wonderful and well made. Get ready to tear up :'-)
OK WHATEVER IM GONNA CRY
Really nice movie! Won't make you indifferent at all.
Boring and overrated.
Absolutely fantastic movie, hands down. Don't hesitate to watch it- you will not be disappointed!
