Here Comes The Spotless Sunshine
In the glow of Eternal Sunshine…. Believe the hype! : - ) “Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind,” which I saw last night, is loopy, intelligent, directed with frenetic brilliance and beautifully acted. The premise of disenchanted lovers erasing their memories makes a good ‘relationship story’ twice as engaging by stretching your mind with sci-fi and presenting the flashback memories out of sync, forming a compelling jigsaw puzzle.
A nearly unrecognizable Kate Winslet stretches her considerable range and Jim Carrey finally feels natural in a serious movie after several years in purgatory for his early cinematic sins. : - ) The supporting cast is excellent and well-used, notably Mark Ruffalo (who I loved in the highly unrated You Can Count On Me, which you should see on DVD) and Tom Wilkinson (the father in In The Bedroom).
