Erternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

OK, we just finished watching this (I can barely type) movie, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and let me tell you, it is fucked up.

I think it's a movie I'll have to watch again. The premise is that this couple has each other erased from their memories. How could you do that? How could you erase someone from your memory? Even bad things or bad people or bad times, everything that went before goes into making you who you are.

And, if you knew that person for decades they would touch so much of your life if you went to erase the memories of them that were tied to all these other things you'd be erasing so much of your life.

But, if you were truly meant to be with someone and you were erased once then aren't you destined to meet them again? Still, you'd be missing out on so many good things.

Very very strange movie.
