Benjamin Reid's rating of the film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

I hadn't seen this one in about 8 years. To be contrarian about an otherwise fantastic film: the medias res intro gives a twist away too early, and Joe & Clem's relationship needs more fleshing out. Though the two actors have chemistry, the characters' relationship still seems to lack substance in its depiction. Nonetheless, the ending is a lot trippier than I remember, and Kristen Dunst's performance is underrated.
