So, I went to see Eternal Sunshine, etc. Just got back in fact.
It was a movie that had me right up until the last five or so minutes. Really, it had the potential to be devastating and emotional and really, truly magnificent, and it ended “okay”.
But Kate Winslet was perfect, and for once, Jim Carrey was spot on. I really, really like how he performed in this movie. He was able to do “serious” without “sappy”.
I think this is the best film either of them have done. But I am disappointed in the end, and I want to read what I think Charlie Kaufman originally wrote – not what Gondry tacked on to the end.
Some of the scenes had me crying with heartache though. And that’s always good, for a movie.
