Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind: The Shooting Script

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind: The Shooting Script Cover

 

Staff Pick

I don't even know how to begin writing anything in relation to the work of Charlie Kaufman. Is he really the most original voice working in Hollywood — or just an escaped mental patient who has gone undetected amidst the denizens of LA? In either case I love his work. I also love the incentive he gives us to want to buy one of his screenplays: not just for the script itself, but for the wildly funny introductions and deadpan mock interviews — the one in Human Nature had me scratching my head, until I realized he was doing a send-up of a P. T. Anderson interview about Magnolia — hilarious! Adaptation also has a great piece of critical commentary by Robert McKee, whose screenwriting seminar book Story was as much a basis of the script as was Susan Orlean's The Orchid Thief. And, for those of you who have been wondering, "When will Charlie Kaufman release a new picture that will send shockwaves through my brain?" you don't have long to wait. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is being released in theaters in March 2004.

Review-A-Day

"Eternal Sunshine is the screenplay in which Kaufman indisputably hits a human nerve, plumbing depths of emotions without resorting to ponderousness and exploring his characters' feelings while keeping the story constantly moving. Best of all, he operates on a largely visual level, never allowing his script to degenerate into lazy exchanges of overwritten dialogue....For those who might wonder why anyone would want to read a screenplay, Eternal Sunshine is the perfect example of how satisfying and rewarding the form can be." Chris Bolton, Powells.com (read the entire Powells.com review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The newest original screenplay from the Oscar®-nominated writer of Adaptation and Being John Malkovich — the only book on his new film starring Jim Carrey, Kate Winslet, Kirsten Dunst, Tom Wilkinson, Elijah Wood, and Mark Ruffalo.

In the new Charlie Kaufman film directed by Michel Gondry (Human Nature), Joel (Jim Carrey) is stunned to discover that his girlfriend Clementine (Kate Winslet) has had her memories of their tumultuous relationship erased. Out of desperation, he contacts the inventor of the process, Dr. Howard Mierzwiak (Tom Wilkinson), to have Clementine removed from his own memory. But as Joel's memories progressively disappear, he begins to rediscover their earlier passion. From deep within the recesses of his brain, Joel attempts to escape the procedure. As Dr. Mierzwiak and his crew (Kirsten Dunst, Mark Ruffalo, Elijah Wood) chase him through the maze of his memories, it's clear that Joel just can't get her out of his head.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind: The Shooting Script includes the complete screenplay, a selection of black-and-white movie stills, selected production notes, and complete cast and crew credits. 20 b/w photos.

You can erase someone from your mind. Getting them out of your heart is another story.
