What would Alexander Pope think?
Because I'm chained to a desk Monday - Friday with little to do, I wound up reading the script for Charlie "Malkovich? Malkovich!" Kaufman's next movie. It's called Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and there's a 60-70% chance that it will rock your socks off.
The story is centered around a young couple. After a nasty argument, the girl runs off to a Total Recall-esque clinic to have her memory of her boyfriend erased. To get back at her, the guy decides to the same. Unfortunately, half-way through the procedure, he changes his mind. Wackiness and weirdness both ensue.
The script is great and so is the trailer but there's just one little problem: Jim Carrey stars in it. Will he single-handedly sabotage the whole thing? Maybe. The movie's release date is set for March 19th.
There's also the website for Lacuna Inc., the movie's fictional clinic. It is both creepy and neat.
