5.0 out of 5 stars Modern Marmite Romance, 5 July 2006
This review is from: Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind [DVD] [2004] (DVD)
With this movie you'll either love it or hate it. To be blunt if you're looking for a Jim Carrey style comedy then I suggest you click back on your browser and buy something else.

To begin with the movie is quite hard to get into, there were multiple times when I was considering switching it off. The key to this film is to slog out the confusing start and wait as the movie unravels it's twists very slowly.

I must point out that Carrey and Winslet do a superb job of acting out their roles in this film. Extra credit for Carrey as I believe this is his first real shot at a serious role; he nails it perfectly.

I really enjoyed the film and I would recommend it to any who enjoys romance films (not chick flicks). If you like Enduring Love by Ian McEwan (novel not movie) then I believe you would enjoy this film a lot. It is interesting, insightful, innovative and once you get into it you can't keep yourself away from the screen until you know how it ends.

So confusing and surreal at times that it's basically the matrix of romance films.

Romance fans buy now....

Jim Carrey comedy fans look away now.
