#nowrewatching Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

"Sand is overrated".
Winslet is in the Greta Gerwig role as I remember.
All about remembering and not remembering right from the start. #EternalSunshine
#EternalSunshine Are we always measuring the now against past (usually if we are alone or miserable or both), or the future (maybe when we are enjoying the now thinking "will it last").
#EternalSunshine In reality people never "meets cute", we all "meet awkward".
Carrey really is dialling it down in this performance. His introvertedness, and the fact that it's Carrey, adds the sense of brain scrabbled loner just hanging on. #EternalSunshine
#EternalSunshine "Everybody's gotta learn sometime". Err, no so much it seems.
#EternalSunshine I forgot Ruffalo is in this.
#EternalSunshine Gondry is very good at using the cinema form to reflect and even manifest Joel's state of mind.
#EternalSunshine The suggest that memories, even flawed uncertain and painful memories, are the layers of the self. If they can be erased then we are annihilating the self.
#EternalSunshine And my Internet is down. Time for a break.
#EternalSunshine This film would work in the Internet age. There is no total erasure of memory in Google world.
#EternalSunshine "Technically speaking the procedure is brain damage".
#EternalSunshine the deja vu sequence is really well edited.
#EternalSunshine Going through all the little passive aggressive digs in relationships. This film captures how we rarely change our pathetic idiotic ways of being.
#EternalSunshine Elijah Wood is really scuzzy in this. His actions are ripe for a discussion of individual ethics.
#EternalSunshine I like that the sci-fi element of the film is not explained at all apart from the general concept. Film as thought experiment that doesn't need 'realist' exposition. The audience just has to go with it; it's acceptable within the surreal dream logic of the film.
