Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) – 4.5/5

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) – 4.5/5

Great movie. I think this is only the second time I’ve seen this movie (the first being in the theater in ’04). I almost gave this a 4 but I think the end is too great.

I think this is a great movie w/ maybe only one drawback: I felt that watching it having seen it before made is less of a thrill ride. The first time thru I was constantly like “what’s going on? what’s real?” and such. But this time, I felt very little of that. So I cd appreciate the writing and crafting of it, but didn’t the excitement of being lost in the story so much.

Maybe I’m being too harsh. But 4.5/5 is pretty rare for me: “Raiders…”, “In Bruges”, “Primer”, etc. 4.5/5 movies

Of course Kaufman’s hand and the overall style are just amazing.


The ending really packs a punch either way. When they decide to get (back) together despite knowing what pain is to come, it’s really powerful.
