Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

by Volker Weber


This is one interesting movie. I never knew that Jim Carrey can be a serious actor. The trailer is kind of a spoiler, since it sets the story in a way the movie doesn't. Without it you need about half an hour to understand what is going on.

The music in this trailer rings quite a few memories: Jeff Lynne's composition Mr. Blue Sky, released on the 1978 Electric Light Orchestra album Out Of The Blue.


I liked the movie also a lot, but the trailer is really completely different from the film. Really, after watching the trailer I thought the movie will be a funny comedy, while it is really completely different. Also Mr. Blue Sky is not used in the movie, just in the trailer.

Oh yeah, I liked this movie and I had the same opinion about Jim Carreys skills in real acting. He does a very good job in this movie and I like it for another reason: Just when I thought "Oh, now I understand the plot..." things went on totally different and surprised me again.

I think this is one of the best movies of the year...of course I am partial to the screenwriter, Charlie Kauffman, who also wrote Being John Malkovitch and Adaptation. That should 'splain a lot if you've ever seen those movies.

Not your slappy comedy at all. I was also pleasantly surprised by Kate Winslets performance.

The perfomance of the actors in this film is great. And if you enjoyed this film as much as I did you should have a look at the mind behind this film: Charlie Kaufmann, the screenwriter.

I can recommend his other films as well: "Adaptation" with Nicholas Cage and "Being John Malkovich". (The two that I have seen).

All three revolve around the questions of identity and the purpose of life. All three are intelligent, funny and surprising variations in the exploration of theese questions.
