    My Darling Clementine

    ★★★★★

    Much better than I remembered, in fact I dare say this is one of John Ford's best movies. A variation of the story of Tombstone, what I love most about My Darling Clementine is the the tone.

    I didn't mean to follow up Inception with another science-fiction film involving entering the human mind, but this is the film my brother wanted to watch. Like Inception, one of the great pleasures of Eternal Sunshine is the details of the process. The idea of a company who specializes in erasing painful memories is brilliant and Charlie Kaufman fleshes out the idea with so many interesting details of the deed is carried out. Kaufman also creates some very human, multi-faceted…
