Joel smears some type of sauce on his neck and plays dead, when Clem is looking for her boots. After Clem leaves the next shot shows that the sauce which was on his neck is on his face as he cleans it off with a napkin. (41:22) See more »
random thoughts for Valentine's day, 2004. Today is a holiday invented by greeting card companies to make people feel like crap.

The opening credits don't begin until about twenty minutes into the film and after much action and plot. See more »
this is my favorite movie of 2004 and definitely one of the top in my all-time favorite lists!
Eternal touched a certain part of you, your heart that most shows never did. or rather could never did. it shows the fragility of a relationship. people want to erase bad memories of a failed relationship yet at the same time, cant bear to part with the good ones! how so can that be done? how can you erase bad memories and saved good ones only? Carrey and Winslet did a perfect job acting as Joel and Clementine respectively. Arguably one of their career best so far. its a pleasant surprise to see the man behind "The Mask" playing such a quiet and introvert role. Kate, on the other hand, brought Clementine to new heights as the bubbly and brutally honest lass who you love and hate.
Eternal is a definite marvel, a feat in itself. its rich and flamboyant yet fragile. it brings the audience to such a personal level it hurts. especially when both cant seem to escape from the erasure.
