Quick reviews of recent DVDs viewed…
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Another one of Jim Carey’s interesting non-rubber-faced roles. Reminded me a bit of Being John Malkovich and 12 Monkeys, but a tad more confusing before you know what’s going on. Very enjoyable.
Coffee and Cigarettes. An all-star cast, mostly playing themselves, in a series of dialogue-driven vignettes, one filmed as long ago as 1987. Clever 2xCate Blanchett bit. Very good Steve Coogan/Alfred Molina sequence. Some great lines. I see a critic on IMDB panned it, but I found it quite amusing.

Really liked ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’ myself, though was a tad confused afterwards, but only because the girl in the video store said, “This is really good and really funny!” when we rented it. I didn’t think it was “… really funny!” at all. Sure, it was a little funny at times, but not typical Jim Carrey funny (which is very good, because I generally hate his movies). I give it a thoroughly recommended thumbs-up too!
I think we must have the same girl, coz we got a similar 3 second gushing review upon renting it.
