Beautiful Message from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind shows the audience that memory doesn’t just file to be thrown away. They’re much more than the mere thoughts stored within the mind. They are more than that because they form the foundation of our self.

The human mind requires both optimistic and destructive to grow and learn. The attempt to erase one’s memory effectively suffocates the person’s life since memories are the foundation of today’s person.

Additionally, the film demonstrates human nature and the natural world since, despite their best efforts, Joel and Clementine meet up with one the same way when Mary goes back to Howard. The things that make us human cannot be changed through denial or ignorance.

The film also explores the subject of regret. The moment Joel and Clementine get the chance to try their relationship again, Joel is pushed forward after seeing all the mistakes he committed wrong in the past. As a result, he discovers more about Clementine and himself.

Even though they recognize that the things that draw them together could ultimately drive them mad, sacrificing their good moments would be more damaging.
