Pick of the Week

This weeks pick was easy, even though two films that are currently in my top 10 of the year movie list were released today. The pick is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, one of the best movies that many of you have probably not seen. It stars Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet as a tragically romantic couple, until Carrey goes to great lengths to forget her.

The film is beautiful, well acted, well written. It has a quirky air to it that is unique and just draws you in. It was directed by Michel Gondry and written by Charlie Kaufman. They combine to bring us this romantic, comic, science fiction story of love and the struggle to hold on to it. I found myself loving this in a very similar way to Lost in Translation, and more recently Garden State. All of them are character driven pieces featuring fantastic relationships, yet all featuring different journeys. I can't recommend this movie enough, see it, but it, rent it, whatever, just see it.

Other possibilities include:

On the music front, only one title to interest me:
