Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind  MAR 21 2004  rating: 5.0 stars

It's only March but I feel safe in saying that this Charlie Kaufman/Michel Gondry collaboration is the most creative film of the year. What's even more remarkable than me making such a ridiculous pronouncement is that the creativity is not just gimmickry; it, like Jim Carrey's comedic energy, is carefully applied in full support of the film's themes and plot. The final scene of the movie between Carrey and Winslet is, at once, one of the most truthful, heartbreaking, hopeful statements about love that I've ever seen in a film.
