Film on the Edge: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

With the Oscars only a few days away and the Sundance film festival coming to a close, I wanted to reflect on one of my favorite movies of all time Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. The movie is taken from an Alexandra Pope poem entitled Eloisa to Abelard:

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.

Through the use of neosurrealism, science fiction, and wonderful art direction the film depicts a new age love story with the use of a great screen play and acting.

It is certainly a film on the edge because of the innovative and creative art direction in connection with a screenplay that will stand the test of time. Take some time and watch it!

Live on the edge, with the arts of course!
