Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind

Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind, a movie that confuses yet entertains, with action, comedy, and most importantly the value of love. At times I became confounded between what was happening in the movie and what significance it had. Although it was amusing trying to figure out why I had to understand certain parts, it was also frustrating when I realized what I thought was important was really irrelevant.

Comedy, another feature in this film was used very lightly; I felt as if it was there simply to keep the dull parts entertaining, and help clarify the confusing ones, on the contrary it complicated matters and it still lacked relevance. If I were to use one word to describe the movie in general it would be awkward, not only because it leaves you with so many questions but also because it refuses to give each scene an explanation.

Love, was one of the many few reasons I was amused by the film. I felt the devotion that took place between both main characters was powerful, intense and entertaining. It was the adventure between the couple that had me watching and wanting more. I feel that the couple was atypical and they both had completely opposite personalities, it was interesting to see how they would get along with each other and it was surprising to see how quickly they fell in love.

Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind was a very divert movie, yet it lacked so much. I feel as if it gave too much in certain scenes, and those same features lacked in others. Although the adventures kept me in interest, what was I to do about the parts that didn’t have action, I was left puzzled. This film was overall interesting, yet it still left me wanting more. More action, more answers, and more reality.

The movie begins with Joel Barish (Jim Carrey), a man who seems lonely, lost, and distant in life from the start. He gets on a train and meets a dysfunctional outspoken female (Kate Winslet) who later introduces herself as Clementine Kruczynski, the two instantly strike up a conversation. This leaves viewers like me confused about what exactly is going on and if the conversation that is taking place between both main characters is necessary. Yet what I did realize was the connection that they had with one another, it was as if they were meant for each other despite their physical, mental, and emotional differences.
