Film Analysis: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

with Jacqueline Langley, PhD

 

Eternal Sunshine

Rather than to accept the reality of life in its own terms, we often shape our perceptions according to what we wish to see, and in time these perceptions often reinforce these wishes.

A quirky and poignant film, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind dares to spend 90% of its time travelling through the recesses of memories and dreams of our protagonist’s mind, creating a film embedded in the human psyche.
