Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind    (Continued)

I have not tired of it. The plot is a little confusing the first time you see it, but I like that. It inspires discussion, and you can watch it a few times before you’ve found all of its hidden parts.

The soundtrack does a lot to subtly enhance the mood. The last song, which starts with the credits, is truly awesome.You are sitting in awe, trying to figure out what just happened during the last two hours, when in creeps this slow, sad tune with a clip of the couple running on the beach in the background. It plays over and over like a broken home video. And you sit there, watching the clip repeat as it strangely syncs with the haunting music, until they fade out and you’re left with nothing.

Ellen Kuras pulls off the cinematography seemingly effortlessly.

This is one of my favorite films! Have you seen Adaptation? It's written and directed by the same screenwriter. If you loved Spotless Mind...I'm sure you'll find Adaptation to be a gem!
