Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Watched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind DVD.

My second favourite scene: when Joel calls Clementine for the first time: Carrey gets the shy, brooding awkward guy just right throughout, but especially in that scene in which you can tell he hates phoning people (a deleted scene explains why he took so long to make the first call he made). Mark Pilgrim highlights my first-favourite scene. Michel Gondry, the director, is normally known for music videos, and just like Spike Jonze (who directed two movies, Adaptation and Being John Malcovich both written by Charlie Kaufman), has directed a highly original, sometimes confusing, always challenging and remarkable movie that examines the role of memory and new love in our daily lives. Strongly recommended.
