Michel Gondry's finest hour, every film he's done since exhibits his lack of focus and screenwriting limitations. Charlie Kaufman's script was the groundwork, Gondry's interpretation of that material spot on perfect. It's perfect in every way, from performances to cinematography to direction. Never been better, truthful love story.
An amazing trip. A superb script, a fantastic mise en scène of it and one of the most real relationship portraits I've seen. I just hope this is one of those visionary movies of things that are going to happen in a future. Yes, I would erase some things if I could and yes, I'm thinking about That.
Wildly imaginative, Eternal Sunshine practically bleeds creativity. God bless Charlie Kauffman for the things his mind dreams up. Gondry is the perfect companion for Kauffman's script, managing to let his sense of wonder (a trait that sometimes overpowers his films) flow perfectly with the tone and story.
What I liked most about this movie was seeing Kate portray the sort of outgoing character we're more likely to see Jim as and Jim portraying the sort of melancholic and sensitive character we usually see Kate as. Also, it's a fascinating and brilliantly colorized concept, which Clementine would probably hate me saying. Actually, I can think of something she would hate more. This movie was NICE!
