    "Ahhh yes, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. The film equivalent of a hipster anthem. I don't think it's overrated at all, like some people think. It's popularity is very well-deserved. The soundtrack alone is worth going gaga over, but couple that with the movie itself and you have a cinematic masterpiece."

    "Charlie Kaufman's imagination is off the charts. How does even he come up with this stuff? It's great great great. A puppeteer? A portal to an actor's mind? Buildings with low ceilings so everybody has to stoop? Sign me up!"

    "Adaptation is the movie-form of every writer's block in history. It's funny because it gets so meta and has these crazy twists and turns that I didn't expect like AT ALL. Jonze/Kaufman collabs, man. They never fail."

    "I cried. Cried so many tears. It's a depressing movie, but god. The humanity in it. You wouldn't know that it was Kaufman's directorial debut with the way this behemoth of a movie turned out. He wrote it, he directed it, e even wrote heartbreaking songs for it. The world needs to protect Kaufman at all costs."

    "I didn't even know george clooney directed movies until I watched this. Really enjoyed it, everyone delivered with great performances and the screenplay was on point. To think that Chuck Barris, THE CHUCK BARRIS, was a killer for the CIA is insane, but hey, I guess it really is true."

    "This movie is legit at the pinnacle of weirdness. But I like it. Does that make me weird? I don't know. Does that make Kaufman weird? Yes it does. I wanna pull a fast one on him and build a portal to his bran, like he did with Becoming John Malkovich, just so I can see what goes on in that brain of his when he thinks up stories like this for movies. "
