I've seen a lot of surreal movies recently. Some movies include 8 1/2, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (which I'll be reviewing later) and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, the latter I'll be reviewing.
Joel Barish (Jim Carrey) has discovered that his ex-girlfriend Clementine Kruczynski (Kate Winslet) has had memories erased from her mind. He decides to undergo the same treatment. But while undergoing the treatment, he realizes he want to keep the memories of Clementine and their relationship.
Boy, this had to be interesting for Carrey and Winslet. I mean, he's mostly known for playing off-the-wall characters and she's mostly known for playing sophisticated roles. Here, they're doing the complete opposite of what they usually play. And it definitely works.
My Rating: ****1/2
