Here you go, Jon. A topic where you can discuss Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. And also any other Charlie Kaufman movies.

I thought Eternal Mindless Sunshine Spot was awesome. One of the best movies I've seen. I haven't seen any other Kaufman movies, though, but I do know he used to write for the sitcom Get A Life, and that was a great show. So good job, Charlie Kaufman. Keep being awesome.

I liked Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, but like many of Charlie Kauffman's films you only need to watch it twice. Once to see it through to the end while trying to figure out what's going on, and a second time once you've figured out or have been told what is going on so you can understand what is actually happening in the movie. Because of that, I usually see his movies once in theatres and once on a rental. He's a very gifted film maker but this is the one big weak point in most of his films.

I found Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind to be one of my least favorire movies of all time...I found it at my dollar theater, had never heard it and had nothing else to do, so I saw it. It was bad  hmpf The only good part was Kirsten Dunst.

I'm awaiting "Eternal Sunshine..." to come out on DVD before I make my final opinion on it. I certainly liked it, a lot, but I think I need to see it again in order to "get" a lot of the symoblism.  But it's perhaps the best "romantic-comedy" I've seen in a while, and I usually hate "romantic-comedies."

Um, I enjoyed "Being John Malkovich" and "Adaptation" a lot, and own both of them.  Some of the other stuff he wrote didn't appeal to me. "Human Nature" was pretty so-so, IMO, and I was partially asleep during "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind," so I can't judge.  I didn't care much for what I saw.

I thought adapdation kinda blew, but John Malkovich was good at the very least for being so damn original, if not for all the hideous Ms. Diaz.

Eternal Sunshine was possibly the best movie I've seen all year, but I can't remember seeing a lot of really good stuff lately.
