Richie Pope-Favorite Love Story


The story of Joel and Clementine in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind will forever be my favorite love story. If who you are is based on your memories and experiences and you erase someone out of your memory, aren't you just erasing yourself? Relationships always end, but we enter them anyway. We enjoy the ride, knowing this.

The final exchange between Joel and Clementine puts it perfectly:

Joel: I can't see anything that I don't like about you.
Clementine: But you will! But you will. You know, you will think of things. And I'll get bored with you and feel trapped because that's what happens with me.
Joel: Okay.
Clementine: ...Okay.

  1. Really love this. The way you handled the "snow" to help tell the story too- brilliant.
