Blessed are the forgetful

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.

There so much deep meaning in the movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind... its one of my favs. It shows how unpredictable love is, 1 minute you have the moon and sky the next its a dark cloudless sky in the middle of the abyss. Its not that fairytale romantic comedy tripe. Its the truth about real people and how things go wrong.

Joel and Clementine are lovers who relationship like many others gets a little out of control. Words are said and impulsive Clementine goes to a doctor who specialises in memory erasing. Hurt and tormented Joel does the same. It shows that we all go thru times when we think that its just better to forget. But beneath the arguments and sometimes hatred there's still love and good times... then he wants it back. But its too late the memory of his Clementine is gone. The irony of the movie is that no matter how badly we screw up our love what's meant to be is meant to be. They find each other back ...
