ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND
July 6, 2017  | By David Bianculli

Showtime, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

After writing Being John Malkovich and the screenplays for Adaptation and Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Charlie Kaufman wrote the screenplay, and co-wrote the original story, for this bizarre yet moving 2004 romantic fantasy drama. It stars Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey, playing a couple best described as ill-fated. She goes to a company to have her memories of him permanently erased – and when he finds out, he starts to react in retribution, then has what might be called second thoughts. The film’s central conceit is audacious. Its structure, and the direction by Michael Gondry, is bold. And Winslet, though it may sound oxymoronic, is unforgettable.
