Movies: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Monday, 2004 April 5 - 12:44 am
Jim Carrey again shows that he's better as a dramatic actor than a comic actor, and Kate Winslet is breathtaking in this remarkable movie.

I was skeptical about this movie when I saw the preview. I have no problems with Jim Carrey, despite the dark "Ace Ventura" years; it was the story line that seemed a bit gimmicky.

But I was wrong. This movie blew me away.

Jim Carrey plays a man who finds out that his ex-girlfriend (Kate Winslet) has arranged to have the memory of him erased from her mind. Upon learning this painful fact, he determines that he should do the same thing. But, as he is having the procedure performed, he relives the relationship in his mind. In "Memento"-like reverse order, we see how the relationship unraveled after a promising start.

But it wasn't long before I just accepted the plot devices and settled into the story. I was astonished at how skillfully and effortlessly the movie developed the universal themes of love and loss. Carrey and Winslet were electrifying in their roles, and the secondary characters and subplots were cleverly woven into the main story.

Overall, this movie is profound, heart-wrenching, and simply brilliant. It is definitely a must-see.

Rating: 5 / 5
