Eternal Sunshine of the *Spot*less Mind

Eternal Sunshine of the Spot*less Mind is a curious film. It stars Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet as two strange characters who met and try form a relationship. It sours and they find a way to erase each other from their memories. Once the film gets going it is very impressive. The film travels back into the Carreyโ€™s characterโ€™s memories and depicts them being erased. As it is happening he decides to fight it and has well written conversations with his memories. One of the themes I thought was in the film was clearly to seize the day. I think nearly every character said at least once โ€˜can we talk about it laterโ€™, or tomorrow or put off talking about something important. With the memories being lost the moment becomes more valuable. I enjoyed this film a lot. The characters were strange but touching and accessible, the dialogue was great and the various erasing memories scenes were impressive. โญโญโญโญ The title of the film is taken from Alexander Popeโ€™s (1688-1744) poem Eloisa to Abelard line 209. A recommended rental for something a little different that should put a smile on your face in an unHollywood manner.

I must have some weird form of dyslexia. I had written the title as Sunless Mind. Curious no one spotted it sooner. Hmmpt.
