    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind


    I just recently separated from my partner, so this film hit close to home. I could definately feel the main character's pain. The film was so incredibly creative and well-written. Kate Winslet gives one of her all time best performances. A beautiful meditation on the lost of love and our capacity to face the grief that follows.

    This film is a compelling and disturbing postmodern film noir. I think it is one of Fincher's best work along with Fight Club. The cinematography is beautiful and freeman really gives a great performance. The explosive ending left me shook. However, it was the best part of the film. The way in which it positions Detective Mills (Brad Pitt) into making an impossible but costly decision demonstrated the excellence of the screenplay. The calculating and manipulative serial killer was one of the most disturbing I've seen on film. An excellent piece of cinema but be prepared to be haunted by that ending.

    I loved re-watching this movie! It was even better upon the second viewing. An intelligent action movie. I'm hoping it can win a few technical oscars this sunday like best sound and best original Song (hold my hand).

    I think what is most underrated about this film is the screenplay. The joker is a complex well defined character and his motives are clear. He seeks to use the worst in human nature to create chaos. I love when the film shows how easily grief and anger can descend into madness and vengeance. That's when the film truly becomes a masterpiece. Nolan's best Film and the best "superhero" movie
