Eternally, being spotless doesn’t work

Screen Shot from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Just watched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind this evening. I’ve been lying in bed all day trying to get a little work done. I’ve been feeling a little miserable. Stomach somewhat upset, bit of a temperature, etc. By the time 6 came around I couldn’t face doing anything else and started movie watching. Definitely a better idea.

This screen shot is I think one of the best stills from the film. There’s something about the colours and juxtaposition of the characters. It’s nice.

I think Jim Carrey is surprisingly good in this film. Like Man in the Moon, he manages to show that he can do more than stupid faces. Kate Winslet is very good too, but the main kudos lies with Charlie Kaufman and Michel Gondry. It’s really well put together and whilst the moral of the story might be fairly simple, it’s handled well.

Worth watching. Nice soundtrack too, including this cover version of “Everybody’s gotta learn sometime” by Beck.
