Hi [13 Jan 2005|06:43am]

[ mood | grateful ]

Hi, I am not new to this but this is my first post. So I was wondering if anyone had any Eternal Sunshine wallpaper/backgrounds for computers. I have like one or two and am getting sick of looking at them and I don't have a program to make them. So if you do, give the link or something.

Thank you.

i just joined here, because this movie is amazing. It gives me hope that there really is somebody out there for any person, and nothing can hold them back. Great movie. Anyway thanks for adding me to the community and stuff, and hopefully more people join and it livens up a little bit.

Check it out: pictures of the new cover and the menus for Eternal Sunshine's 2-disc special edition, which is coming out in (I think) January. This totally made my morning.

Also: any idea of how we can get more posts? I feel kind of silly, seeing as the last 4 posts to the community were mine... are you having any trouble with it, or are you just being quiet? Let me know. I'm always open to suggestions.

Charlie Kaufman Quote [22 Nov 2004|01:21am]

Everything, to me, is just watching, you know, real people, which I think is a very difficult thing to accomplish. I think, in some ways, most of us don't even know what real people act like any more because we're so used to seeing what movie people act like. -- Charlie Kaufman

I really liked this quote. I've read a lot of reviews that say Kaufman's characters are "bizarre," but to me, they're incredibly relatable. I've known a lot of Joels and Patricks (and Donalds and Charlies and Lotties, etc). And Kaufman's women are real and three-dimensional in a way that shocks me. To me, the most bizarre characters are in movies like "Sleepless in Seattle," or any given Sandra Bullock movie -- the completely bland, nice, uncomplicated heroes who always have perfect hair and never make a mistake that they can't fix. What do you think? Are these characters real to you? Which ones are the most (or least) familiar?

Most of Eternal Sunshine is the Clem-Joel relationship, as seen through Joel's eyes. We see what Joel thinks about Clem, and what he believes to be the high and low points of their relationship, and some of the early childhood experiences that shaped him. I once read an interview with Charlie Kaufman in which he said that the movie would have been completely different from Clem's point of view. How do you think it would have been different? What would Clementine's memories be like? Would we have seen her family, her childhood? And what would they be like -- what new light would be shed on Clem? In my opinion, Clem outside of Joel's head is a lot different than memory Clem -- so how do you think she would remember herself, or him? I wonder about this a lot, so I thought I would invite some other perspectives.

Welcome to always_spotless. I formed this community as an alternative to spotless_minds. That community was unmoderated and war-torn; lots of people wanted out, but some of us couldn't figure out where to go. This community is meant to be peaceful and totally non-partisan. I'll probably post some questions as soon as we have a few more members. Have fun, and thanks for helping me to start this place up!
