The concept for Eternal Sunshine is simply incredible. Unfortunately, the narrative isn't. The love story should feel genuine, but it never gets fully fleshed out due to subplots that constantly get in the way of Joel's (Jim Carrey) storyThe concept for Eternal Sunshine is simply incredible. Unfortunately, the narrative isn't. The love story should feel genuine, but it never gets fully fleshed out due to subplots that constantly get in the way of Joel's (Jim Carrey) story arc. However, with strong performances from all cast members, interesting visuals and a great soundtrack, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is worth a watch, at the very least. Expand

Whilst it's unique plot and good dialogue is mesmerising, I could never see myself watching this again. The introduction was sloppy and put together and the first act needed WAY more context than it delivered. All in all, it's not a bad movieWhilst it's unique plot and good dialogue is mesmerising, I could never see myself watching this again. The introduction was sloppy and put together and the first act needed WAY more context than it delivered. All in all, it's not a bad movie to say the least, you can tell there was meta tons of effort put into it. I wish that they didn't get so caught up in the confusion and mystery element as it's third act resolution leaves significant arcs with poor and disappointing endings. Expand

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Poo tee weet. A tale of two ex-lovers incapable of getting over each other the normal way so instead elect to do it with science. The movie ends where it began, lacking any resolution whatsoever and proving that their unhappy relationship will prevail, leaving me only with disappointment and a dejected "ok".

With that said, Winslet's acting is great, and the cinematography is beautiful. But I can't recommend this to a friend.
