Already a review for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind!
I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to this movie.

Between being a fan of the earlier movies written by Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich and Adaptation), and the feeling that this is going to be in the same vein as Chain of Fools, the fact that Elijah Wood is in it, the fact that Tom Wilkinson is in it (was also in Chain of Fools), the parts of the script I've read, and the great teaser promos... I don't know which is the biggest reason I'm excited, but - I am!

Here's a link to a review (found at BEI): http://www.slantmagazine.com/film/film_review.asp?ID=959

Warning: there are spoilers. I especially suggest you not read the last two paragraphs or you'll know too much about the beginning of the movie, and it's probably something better seen without knowing what's going on...

Release Date: March 19, 2004 (limited)

thanks Ros - I have already been over to The Inn today- but because I am a lazy reader sometimes I scanned it and missed the last two paragraphs ...and i've forgotten a lot of the script I just started - and didn't finish by any means -reading.

The UK doesn't even HAVE a release date yet ...still this might be a good thing - maybe we'll get March too!

hah! - no chance ...no trailers.... eek! - Maybe we aren't getting it at all!?!!

Thank heavens for DVD :)

Yep, it comes out March 19... that's one day before my birthday.

!!!!! I think Elijah is sending me birthday presents through films now. *snort*

Am not going to read to read the review, but I trust your judgement. Especially when I hear it get compared to Chain of Fools, that pleases me greatly.

By the by, where did you get your copy? I think I might need one or I'll essplode. ;-)

Yep, you need one! *G*

I got it the way everybody else seems to get theirs - through eBay, from one of the sellers from the Phillipines, where it's available on VCD.

Just make sure to check their approval ratings (use the one with the best approval rating), and check how to pay. If one allows paypal, that's best. Most ask for a money order, and an international money order can cost $10 from your bank! I ended up finding nobody who took paypal, so I just sent cash - probably an even $20, since multiple bills (and, god forbid, coins!) are harder to "hide". Sure, you're taking a risk, but you just have to decide if it's worth it.

I have GOT to see this movie! ("Limited"???? Usually that means "not Green Bay." eeeek!) Thank you, Ros, for posting the article.
*knuffels* (can't get over that word! It's Gilly's fault! haha)
