Is it you Carrey?
A lonely man, digging sand on a beach says, “Sand is overrated. It’s just tiny rocks.” It’s starts from there and gets weirder all the time. But the beauty of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is, it never leaves you dangling like most of the art house stuff. It achieves closure.
It’s a brilliant movie, I haven’t seen such a great movie in some time now. Hell, I can’t even remember which was the last good movie I saw. Wait - American History X - don’t remember anything in between.
As you must have heard by now, Jim Carrey is simply amazing in this movie. Sure we all saw The Truman Show and knew he could do more than playing dumb. But even in that, there were lots of times when his trademark goofy boy style came through. Not so here. This is a new Carrey - fresh and remarkably good.
It’s hard for me to write anything more without giving away the plot. Not that the plot is something great, but it’s the unfolding of the story that’s so beautiful.
