Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless MindStarted out ok. Then got really weird, really fast. Towards the end, after I understood what was happening, it began to redeem itself. I think it’s one of those movies that you have to watch twice to appreciate.

Why was it so confusing? We’ll the movie is about a man who is having some memories erased while he sleeps. So, half of the movie is from the perspective of the man’s dreams. As he’s dreaming of one memory, and it begins to be erased, his dream starts falling apart. Past memories and present thoughts start to intermingle, creating a very weird storyline.

I wouldn’t write this one off. Reminds me a tad bit of Memento, only more bizarre. Maybe more like A Beautiful Mind. I’d say this is a movie for the patient movie watcher.
