Eternal bright sunlight of the mind or something

Ok, the movie is called ‘Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind’ and when my friend proposed me to go see it, I immediately raised multiple red flags: it has a preposterously bombastic title, it features Jim Carrey, it is directed by a music video director. But the screenplay is by Charlie Kaufman, and ‘Being John Malkovich’ and ‘Adaptation’ are credentials that cannot be ignored. We went to see it, and I now concede that the movie is a beautiful, entertaining and at times hilarious piece of art, that Carrey does some great acting and that the director pulled off a great feat – a movie that is truly original and that has the ability to surprise is so rare that it needs to be cherished. It has the typical bittersweet Kaufman absurdity all over it and that’s all I’m gonna say about it – check it out for yourself!
