Last Sunday we saw Charlie Kaufman's
The Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind.
Today, a friend asked me today what I thought.

I'm not sure.

There is nothing I can pinpoint ... nothing wrong with the film.
Interesting premise and story.
Good cast,
Good acting, (Jim Carrey was terrific.)
Wonderful cinematography.

But I left feeling unsatisfied, down, like something was missing.
What was it really about?

Was it that, even with all pain, love is worth it?
Or that every experience holds value?
Was it that you cannot have happiness without sadness?
Or, that we have karmic connections with certain people?
Did Charlie Kaufman have something to say?

The film seemed dark..
I felt let down. I didn't enjoy it.
I'm not sure I learned anything.
I guess it was good.

But, I don't think I'd watch it again.
I'm just not sure.

see, to me you hit the nail on the head with you statement... I DONT THINK ID WATCH IT AGAIN!

If that is truly the case, then for you anyway, it was not a good movie. you also seem to be trying to give it the benifit of the doubt, somehow protecting for saying it was a bad movie. you felt let down... you wouldnt see it again... you didnt connect with it.

no biggie, just not you cup of tea.

(i aint seen it by the way, but now i really want to.) i actually like a little confusion.
