Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind reviews

Elvis Mitchell from the New York Times calls it a "Philip K. Dick Hallmark card", but it's not a bad review. I don't know why he insists on so many gratuitous pop music references in his reviews, but this time around, he's stuck on REM's Reckoning album. Oh Elvis, you are so in the know.

The Daily News thinks it's stronger, more consistent, and more genuine than other Charlie Kaufman movies (Adaptation and Being John Malkovich.)

And Roger Ebert actually quotes the Alexander Pope poem (from which the title is taken) that we linked to earlier, gives a positive review, and has special praise for Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet's performances.

The Washington Post review stresses the dreamy romanticism of the movie ("poignant", "sweetly ironic") so much that it almost makes me have second thoughts about going this weekend.

Oh but wait: there's the Ruffalo factor. OK ADM, we're still on.
