Watching a nice movie at home on a sunday evening, all alone, far from the daily commotion is a layman desire which i always nurtured but never realised, only till last weekend.
With the silence inside the house, the thunderstorm outdoors blended perfectly to produce the ambiance which made "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" - a nice experience for me.
The Movie is based on a visionary concept of memory mapping and subsequently erasing the memory core.
A memory map is build based on the experience of the patient and thence starts the procedure to erase the emotional core that each memory builds on and on.Reverse timeline is followed meaning most recent to the oldest memory, thus finally effacing the entire block. The person forgets even subtle interactions.
The movie traces the tumultuous relationship of a couple both opting for the surgery. They meet again and inevitably fall in love, only to discover the vituperations of their long dissolved marriage. Its the Impulsive girl Vs Shy boy.
But the real twist shreds your senses.
The affair of the doctor and the receptionist.
Both Jim carrey and kate winslet have delivered knockout performances.
The movie is based on the quote from Alexander Pope:
"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"
You can erase someone from your mind.
Getting them out of your heart is another story.
And somewhere there, the drizzle, soothed my nerves again...
