Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind stars Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet and another genius script from Charlie Kaufman, brilliantly directed by Michel Gondry. The plot involves Carrey and Winslet breaking off their relationship and utilizing the services of a surrealistic agency which erases all memories of the former loved one from the client's brain; but describing the plot of this movie misses the point. Mentioning the superb performances, the striking visual impact, the excellence of the minor characters, and the perfection of the smallest details, also kind of misses the point. To me, the point is how Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind tells its story and makes its points in such a wildly original way. Originality in today's world can't be celebrated enough. I gave it ten out of ten.
