First of all: ha ha ha ha Ashlee Simpson! You’ve been found out! If only this could have happened to Britney Spears at some point…
Anyways, back to the subject at hand. “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”. I LOVED this movie. Why? Oh, for so many reasons.
#1. Jim Carrey: Incredible, understated performance.
#2. Kate Winslet: She can do more than period pieces!
#3. Mark Ruffalo: Loved the hair.
#4: Elijah Wood: Just look at him!
#5: Great effects and camera work.
#6: Zany plot and timeline.
#7: Its message: “The heart wants what the heart wants.” This movie is making me think a lot about the relationships in my life.
I also loved the post-modernist way in which this movie was put together through fragmentation, stream-of-consciousness and lack of structure. But for me, the most important part is how it contains sweetness, heart and emotion under all of the different pieces. It’s very, very different from your conventional American movie; it’s very European-art-house. I wish more movies were like this one: ones that make you think AND have emotional value. Watch it.
