Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

eternalSunshineI’m sure you’ve probably seen the accolades all over the web (not to mention the movie already), but if you haven’t, go see Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It’s phenomenal: great casting and acting, stupendous sound editing (the best I’ve seen in a movie in ages), and just brilliant direction and script. I walked out of the film feeling drunk and woozy, like I had just eaten a meal so rich, so tasty, and so filling that it went straight to my head. This was easily one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long, long time.

I was happy to see actor Mark Ruffalo again - I hadn’t seen him in a movie since I saw You Can Count on Me. Give this guy more high profile roles, Hollywood!

I love movies that have fun, conceptually spot-on web sites, too, and Eternal Sunshine is no exception: besides the official site, there’s also a stylistically perfect Lacuna, Inc. web site that somehow just fits.

Director Michel Gondry is one of those rare artists whose work is just incredibly inspiring. One of my students lent me the double-DVD set of his work (one of the excellent Director’s Series editions), and the amount of imaginative, creative work in it is enough fuel to keep me inspired for weeks.

Next up: The Corporation.
