Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

March 23, 2004

[Would you erase me?]Was IMing with a couple former co-workers yesterday when they invited me out to see Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I didn’t know that it would be a mixture of some of my favorite movie genres: sci-fi/fantasy romantic comedy. I think this was the most non-linear movie I’ve ever seen — twisted and funny, from the writer of Being John Malkovich. This is one I’d like to see again, this time on a date with Kay. But it’s not just a date-flick; my co-workers & I had a good time.
It was a weekday matinee showing. When the film was done, I wanted to turn to the few others in the theater and ask, “Does anybody here have a job?”

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.

  1. We watched “Adaptation” a while back – did you guys see that one? I didn’t find out until afterwards Susan Orlean is a real author, really wrote “The Orchid Thief”, Laroche existed as featured, and Kaufman really was hired to turn the book into a movie – which made the movie even weirder.
    I really want to see this one – will probably head out with Randall some time next week.

    Not me! *giggle*
    Oh, wait, *horror of the realization steals across him* I sorta do, now… But I didn’t then! I swear!

  3. Ladies and Gentlemen, my good friend Chris (with whom I saw the movie) has come out of lurking!

  4. I saw the movie again, this time with Kay. It was kind of like watching The Matrix the second time: the shock isn’t there, but you notice the details.
    Kay liked it. 🙂
