Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Once again, I am impressed by Charlie Kaufman (who is 45 by the way, who knew?). He has found a few subjects -- memory, time and space -- that are incredibly interesting and fit his writing style perfectly. His newest adventure is wonderful and Jim Carrey is able to give an appropriately subdued performance. I really like it when he brings it down a notch or fifty.

I would highly recommend this for fans of Being John Malkovich, Adaptation or the time/space continuum.


But don't forget the direction/cinematography of Michel Gondry...another stunning visual extravaganza from him.

I've said it once and I'll say it again, the little crew that could, Kaufman, Jonze, Coppola and Gondry are taking over the new school of filmmaking, and this is a good thing. I wonder how things change now that Spike and Sofia are divorced...
