Tonight Kristyna and I went out to dinner and the movies with some friends. We ended up seeing Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind which was really excellent.
I won’t go into too many details about the film here, because to talk about it in detail would sort of give away a lot about the story. However, I will say that both Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey both give excellent performances. It’s the sort of inventive story that could only come from Charlie Kaufman (who I have now come to believe is a genius)… while at the same time being a very touching story about real human emotions and relationships without being clich?.
It’s another “instant favorite” of mine, and if you liked Magnolia, I think you’ll like this one too. But even if you didn’t like Magnolia, see it anyway.
