Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind 9.5

In what amounts to being one of the greatest films of the last decade, ESOASM is a romantic drama that tackles the value of memories -good and bad- in the context of relationships.

In this alternate universe, science has devised a way to erase the painful memories of people who want to move on with their lives – when they feel being unable to cope with certain events and finding peace. It’s a terribly moving piece, because almost everyone has secretly wanted to forget certain memories at some point and almost everyone has had a difficult break-up in their lives – so one would be hard-pressed to not find something to relate to.

The material is profound, beautiful and, at times, humourous; it’s fantastic, imaginative fun. Oh, it’s a quirky number, most certainly, but it’s fully sustained by Jim Carey and Kate Winslet’s heartfelt performances. It’s also a cinematic feast for the senses: director Michel Gondry has masterminded a visual treat served up with a sonic palette that is rarely offered by American films; this movie needs to be seen LARGE and LOUD (preferably with a properly calibrated surround system)

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind might seem like it’s for the artsy crowd, but it’s mostly for romantics, dreamers and lovers of cinema. If you’re one of those, please do yourself a favour and catch this film.
