julian, it is the best movie of 2004... the only reason why it was not as heavily nominated as the other frontrunners was becasue it came out so long ago and when movies come out in the march time period, regardless of how ogod they are, they get overlooked since the other filmas are more fresh in the nominator's minds

i really hate jim carey, and i LOVED him in this movie... he really toned down his "LOOK AT ME!!!!" kind of motif about him that can be funny but is ultimately annoying... kate winslet is AMAZING as clementine and i think it is her best role of her career (and she is a great actress with some great roles)

the story is amazingly funny, heartbreaking, and will leave you in the utter state of ambivalence.... at the end you have to try and figure out whether to laugh your ass off or cry your eyes out for days (i did both lol)... the cinemetography is amazing as you travel through jim carey's mind and memories in such an original way that you will be left breathtaken... the supporting cast is pretty good and you really grow to love to hate elijah wood in this movie...

overall, if you (or anyone on this board) have not seen ESOTSM ... you really, really, REALLY need go rent it immediately... you will truly appreciate it as fine filmaking that has no bounds in emotional and acting strength and power...

it was overlooked by the oscars, but the most nominated oscar movies are not always the best (ESOTSM was the highest rated movie of the year and the most mentioned for awards and acting honors... with over 50 4 star reviews from papers)

all in all.... GO SEE IT NOW~!

Fantastic movie! Charlie Kaufman's a genius! And I've never seen Jim Carrey so serious. Kate Winslet's amazing as well! Anyways I love this film! I like quirky movies.

best movie of 2004.


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

LOVED it, my favorite movie of 2004. Loved the story, Jim, Kate, and also Kirsten Durst as well, when she usually doesn't do much for me. I didn't care much for "Adaptation," and "Being John Malkovitch" was just okay, but here, the story isn't just bizarre and off-the-wall, it's actually got real heart, so it really got to me. I also really liked the song they play at the end: Beck's "Everybody's Gotta Love Sometime" (or something like that).

why does everyone keep bashing carrey, I mean I hate his face-movies as much as everyone else, but it's not the first time he gives us a magnificent performance, now is it? forgot the truman show? or man on the moon?
