Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Synopsis

A mind-bending journey through the memories of Joel, played by Jim Carrey (free of all the tics he has displayed in his wackier fare), who is struggling to reclaim what he realizes may be the fiber of his being. An anarchic spirit runs through the entire film, and redefines the rules of traditional structure. This, director Michel Gondry's second collaboration with screenwriter Charlie Kaufman makes the surreal aspects of Kaufman's earlier scripts ("Being John Malkovich," "Adaptation") seem tame by comparison.
