    Yeah - we ended up going to see it twice - first time the power kept breaking down & we left after an hour.

    Second time round it made a whole lot more sense, and was much more enjoyable. Darker than 'Being John Malkovich' but just as complex.

    Very convincing stoned acting as well

    the movie was ok... so confusing though! didn't know what was happening half the time... but i kinda understood in the end. it was done well and a very cleverly thought up idea :)

    i loved it..

    & was never lost at all. i owe it all to mary jane. ;)
  5. i thought the acting high was pretty good, but i'm tired of mind fuck for a while. kill bill vols 1&2 and that tom hanks flick, ladykillers all impressed me more than spotless mind. still entertaining and worth my dollars.

    It helped *a lot* to see it a second time :)

    I don't think I've enjoyed a film more than this since Donnie Darko - at first I was a little disappointed that it wasn't a more 'obvious' comedy, but it turned out to be much, much better than I'd hoped.

    i thought it was really worked for me cos i'd recently broken up with my girlfriend and felt like whatever the name of jim carreys character is...:S...

    it's one of those films i'll buy as soon as it comes out on dvd and watch it all the time..

    It is a really cool movie, although I didn't understand everything. I saw it in London and they didn't have Dutch subtitles :p
    Kate Winslet definetely deserves an Acadamy Award for her performance in this masterpiece!
  9. ah, Kabbalist, we meet again.
    I must say that I LOVED this movie. It totally fucked with my head (mostly in the middle), but I thought that Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet both did an amazing job. I also think that Kate is extremely underrated at times and deserves recognition for every performance she's ever been in.
    Back to the movie, right, I actually found it to be a very sad movie, which was curious to me because everyone plugged it as a comedy. I just imagined what it would be like to lose your memories and how horrible it would be...
    nonetheless, see the movie anyway

    I saw ads for it and I thought it looked really good. There's been alot of good movies coming out lately, moreso than all the usual crap--Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless mind, Coffee and Cigarettes, Triplets of Bellville, Kill Bill 1/2, and Lost in Translation. I really look forward to seeing essm.

    Haven't seen it yet, myself, but I did read good reviews of it when it was new. However, I read personal reviews of it that indicated it was very confusing...

    DARKER than "Being John Malkovitch"?! I thought that was a disturbingly dark movie! The idea that John Malkovitch was essentially nullified by intruding souls?! How much darker than that can you get?!

    btw it's "of the," not "on a." :p

    Blue skies,

    We always meet, let's be a team!
  13. Yeah Kabbalist! Let's take over, man :p
  14. I thought it was kind of sad also...not the ending, but everything leading up to the ending :D.

    I liked it. I too found it to be rather sad. The jumping around made me think of Pulp Fiction. Overall, I felt it was well-cast and well-acted. :)

    thought this was a great movie! i especially love the way in all kauffman's movies you'd never expect the actor to pull off the part so well, but they always do an amazing job.

    my favorite line of the movie is at the end when they're arguing about whether they should try to date after hearing the tapes:

    "but that's the way it's going to happen!!"
    (........silence.........glance........CLICK!........oh yeah!.....)

    Amazing film ... It makes you laugh, it makes you cry, beautifully shot and wonderfully acted.. I don't think I've seen Carrey and Winslet in anything better. I want to watch it again though so I guess I miught very soon :) WONDERFUL!

    How happy is the blameless Vestal's lot!
