My favorite movie of all time is eternal sunshine of the spotless mind. I first watched it almost 2 years ago..After my first “serious” boyfriend & I broke up. And more than anything I related to Joel, I was the love sick, unsure puppy dog. Now months after my 2nd really serious relationship ended, I see him as Joel and me as Clementine. Because I’m the dsyfunctional one, I’m the one people look at and love for my spontaneous overview and then realize up close I’m flawed and broken. In the movie though, Joel and Clem get a second chance because of their choice to erase each other from their minds, only remembering they should meet in montauk. But real Life doesn’t often give second chances, and honestly my “Joel” doesn’t deserve the 2nd chance.
