directed by Michel Gondry
with: Jim Carrey, Kate Winslet, Elijah Wood, Mark Ruffalo, Kristen Dunst, Tom Wilkinson

"How happy is the blameless vestal's lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd."
from Alexander Pope's poem Eloisa to Abelard
I would not change anything in this movie. This movie is perfect. The music, sound effects, cuts, zooms, visual effects, dialogues, acting, and everything that constructs the mise-en-scene, are perfect. Nothing is missing, nothing is excessive, everything is in the right place and precisely put together. This happens when you have a team of such talented and highly creative members like Michel Gondry (director), Charlie Kaufman (screenplay) and Jon Brion (music). Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is an intelligent comedy boiled in the deepest emotions. It is complex and mind-bending, romantic and humorous, sad and surrealistic. It plays with the idea of the importance of memory and the influence of it in relationships and life itself. Indirectly it also contains strong ideas about time and place. Gondry's masterpiece and Jim Carrey's best. 

Highly Recommended. 
Rating: 10/10
