Product Description

The best reviewed and most original film of 2004, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, is now available in this limited collector's edition. With exclusive all-new special features and a collectible photo book, this special 2-disc set is a must-have for every movie aficionado. Acclaimed writer Charlie Kaufman and visionary director Michel Gondry bring you an all-star ensemble cast in this comical and poignant look at break-ups, breakdowns and breakthroughs. Jim Carrey, Kate Winslet, Kirsten Dunst, Mark Ruffalo and Elijah Wood shine in this memorable film that Premiere magazine called, "A masterpiece! Hugely entertaining!"

Additional Features

With the Oscar restrictions on screeners starting in 2002, studios have found another outlet to get their movies into the hands of Academy voters--releasing the film on DVD before the balloting. Thus this new edition of the eccentric comedy comes with a photo book stuffed with the superlatives the critics rained on the film; the kind of swag often thrown to Oscar voters. The first disc is the same as the initial widescreen release; the second disc has over an hour of interesting extras. The behind-the-scenes featurettes showcase director Michel Gondry's unique approach to use theatrical tricks and old fashion, in-camera effects over CGI wizardry. These camera tests and snippets of unused scenes are more fascinating than the 20-minute deleted and extended scene section. Plus there are plenty of jokes about Gondry's heavy accent--most by the director himself. --Doug Thomas

    Amazing performances by Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet.
    Amazon Customer
    It may seem like just another love story at first, but once you get into the movie, you realize that this is so much more than a love story.
    Coming from the mind of Charlie Kaufman, this film is luckily more in the vein of BEING JOHN MALKOVICH and ADAPTATION than HUMAN NATURE.

    When you hear the basic storyline of "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," it sounds like another one of those "wacky" romantic comedies that they love to put out every month. However, when you realize that this is written by Charlie Kaufman (who also wrote "Adaptation" and "Being John Malkovich"), then you know that this will be a very different movie. This is such an enjoyable, hilarious and a brutally honest film that has immediately become a favorite of mine.

    Jim Carrey plays "Joel;" a quiet and shy person who keeps to himself most of the time. He's bummed out when he discovers that his girlfriend had a new procedure done in where she has erased him from her memory. Not knowing what else to do, Joel decides that he must get the same thing done to him and goes to the clinic to have her erased from his memory, hoping that the pain and sadness will go away. When he's undergoing the procedure, unconscious and reliving the memories as they are being erased, Joel begins to realize that there were some very happy moments he had with her and he doesn't want to lose them after all.

    It's really hard to categorize a movie like this. While it is indeed a comedy on some levels, it has a lot of dramatic elements to it, as well. Because of this, people will either fall in love with it or despise every minute of it. What really struck home with me is how honest and creative it really is. You'll find a lot more honesty and truth in "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" than in most of the "cute" comedies that are out there today. It is extremely easy to relate to the characters, and that is what makes it all the more realistic for us. Jim Carrey is absolutely fantastic in this, as he is very controlled and doesn't try to steal the show.

    ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND, which I saw tonight in an advance screening, is the most twisted, original romantic comedy I've seen in a long time. Coming from the mind of Charlie Kaufman, this film is luckily more in the vein of BEING JOHN MALKOVICH and ADAPTATION than HUMAN NATURE.
    The film, which operates on the premise that people can delete bad relationships from their memories, travels essentially backward down its story's timeline. It examines several key themes regarding compatibility, fate and how our memories can make up who we are.
    Jim Carrey, who plays his role of Joel straight rather than wacky, delivers his best and most human performance since THE TRUMAN SHOW. But the movie, thankfully, belongs to Kate Winslet. As Clementine, the girlfriend who Joel wants to either love or forget, Winslet is wacky, colorful and hilarious - the sort of girl you want to either love or strangle.
    While their central story plays out mostly within Joel's brain, several equally interesting subplots emerge involving the memory-erasing workers played by Kirsten Dunst, Mark Ruffalo, Elijah Wood and Tom Wilkinson.
    The thing I like best about Charlie Kaufman scripts is that I don't always know where they're going but, in the end, they cover all their bases, address all the philosophical questions inherent in their twisted plots and always leave me entertained. ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND is a terrific movie.

    I think that people who say that there's no such thing as an original plot ought to see this movie and see if they still believe it afterwards.
    "Eternal Sunshine" is just as creative as "Being John Malkovich" but without the characters who did despicable things (i.e. taking over people's bodies) in the latter movie. Instead, the story centers around Joel (Jim Carrey) and Clementine (Kate Winslet) who are two very appealing "nice people."
    I'm a guy, so naturally my eyes are on Kate Winslet. She really does merit the description that one critic gave her, "very easy to fall in love with" (I know I have). Besides this movie, I've seen her in two other great roles in "Sense and Sensibility" and "Enigma." In "Eternal Sunshine" she plays the shy man's dream girl: a wacky, flaky woman who lights up every scene that she's in. Yet she's also a wounded spirit, fighting a problem with alcohol.
    Jim Carrey does a fine job playing Clementine's soul mate (and in some ways her polar opposite). He's a quiet introspective man with none of the trademark Carrey goofiness. Joel is someone I could readily imagine being, unlike if the role was played by better known actors who never play anything less than flawless human beings.
    I won't spoil the plot beyond the fact that I thought it was a life-affirming story about the part of a love affair that usually gets short shrift, when people either come to terms with or fail to come to terms with the shortcomings of their significant others. The special effects and science-fiction conceit of memory erasure give the love story of Clementine and Joel a lift that a more straightforward narrative would lack.
    On a final note: some people will probably read the script that is available on the Internet before seeing this movie.

    I've never submitted a review before, cause I never had a reason to. I was lucky that I got a chance to see the sneak preview. I had no idea what it was about before seeing it. I think sometimes it's better that way. Nothing was given away before it was meant to, and you have no false expectations before seeing the movie.
    It is, by far, one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. And there were some good ones in the past few years. It makes you really appreciate life, all the good and all the bad, and it will move you if you've ever been in a relationship. But in general anyone should and could appreciate this movie. It has some neat special effects that isn't over the top. Very appropriate and subtle that simply compliments the movie. It's a thinking movie, in that afterwards it gives you a different perspective on your current, past, and maybe future relationship (if you still remember by that time). And I think it's for the better.
    I don't want to give anything away, and ruin your experience with the movie. Go with an open mind. You'll enjoy it, I promise.

    Blu-Ray Special Features
    I have the Canadian edition and there are no special features at all. There isn't even a top menu--it goes straight into the movie, and "top menu" does nothing. "Pop up menu" only lets you select between Dolby 5.1 English, DTS-HD MA, and Dolby 5.1 French.

    HD-DVD video/audio transfer quality?
    The HD transfer is nice and clean, and is a step up from the standard release. I never found the visuals to really pop in this film, but the jump to HD is noticable. The extras are exactly the same as the regular DVD. A great web site with reviews of HD-DVD video and sound quality is located... Read More
