its sad to see that Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind didnt even make a dent in the local box-office; everyone else seems eager to watch the usual summer Hollywood fare. it also disgusts me to hear that some people dismiss the film since Jim Carrey was in it, and how they don’t like his type of comedy.
i’m a half-idiot myself, sleeping a good 15-or-so minutes during the film, but it was unintentional, noting that i saw it mid-afternoon, and i was a good 2-3 hours away from being awake for a full day. but at least i’m aware of my loss.
alas, if you expect a movie review, click here.
to end this post, here’s an excerpt from a poem recited in the film:
How happy is the blameless vestal’s lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray’r accepted, and each wish resign’d;
–Eloisa to Abelard, Alexander Pope
