    Cinema of time and space. Evolving as it resist, standing as it moves ahead.

    Probably the most heartbreaking of all relationship films, mostly because it is rooted deep within the sensation of that point in time, an angst that surrounds the effervescence of youth, marrying the possibility of freedom for the same time. Maybe love is what is holding them back, and that's the issue.

    Ps.: When, in 1985, the Michael Jackson song that plays is Baby Be Mine and it's instantly recognizable, you realize the man's stature and influence in worldwide pop culture.

    The beauty in this is how it uses form as a disruptive force. Everything sounds like a crumbling dream, descending into the boring and stale reality, opposed to the vivid colors Clementine brings.

    It's like the movie tries to bring Joel - and us - back to the sadness of daily life, to its stillness, while the script dives into the analysis of modern relationships. It's a film where we end up thinking before we feel anything, which makes us ask a thousand questions only to realize that we needed the simplest of answers.

    Ok.
