    Thought stylistically interesting and fresh, make up for the terrible themes, messages and overall content presented in this film. Julianne Moore and Tony Danza have a couple of strong moments but again, not enough to make me enjoy this movie. The idea that only the lonely people who are so shallow and disconnected from other humans need to watch porn? Come on, is that still where we are? Very disappointing.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Wow. This movie was gripping from beginning to end. Based on a true, now declassified, story, Ben Affleck is incredible as both actor and director at taking us through the details, emotions and tensions of this tale. A must see. Excellent performances by all. I was so anxious in the last 15 minutes of the film that I started (but didn't finish) Googling the ending on my phone.

  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind 2004

    ★★★★ Watched 06 Oct, 2012

    This is a film I avoided watching because I was scared to feel feelings. I just saw it for the first time. It's a movie that keeps you thinking long after the credits roll - and asks questions of fate, memories, love, hope and regret. Beautiful cinematography allows you to go on the journey with the characters and the score ties it all together. Jim Carey is amazing.
