Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Both Joel and Clementine have their memories of each other erased. After Mary (Kirsten Dunst) finds that she had her memory erased after having a relationship with Dr. Howard (Tom Wilkinson), she sends the files and tapes to the people who have had their memories erased. When Clementine and Joel discover what they did, they eventually decide to start a new relationship with each other.

Big Evil

Visible crew/equipment: In the beginning, when Joel "first" goes to Kate's apartment for drinks and Kate is discussing her worry of wasting time, when the shot switches from a side shot to a straight shot, a boom mike shadow moves above Kate's head.

Trivia: The scene where Joel stumbles upon the memory of his visit with the doctor, even though there are two Joels, there are no special effects being applied. As the shot turned back and forth, Jim Carrey actually dashed behind the camera, switching from a standing up wearing a jacket and stocking cap, to sitting down wearing no jacket no hat. It's actually quite impressive.

More trivia for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Question: It was mentioned several times throughout the movie that Lacuna Inc gets really busy on Valentines, and also at Joel's place when the tech guy tells Patrick to stop fooling around as they have to get moving to other jobs... So what happened to all the other clients since the remainder of the night was spent at Joel's place?

Answer: When the techs are packing up then next morning, the young guy (Kirsten's boyfriend) says something about having to get to the next job. So its safe to assume the erasure takes a good 8 hours to complete normally but Joel kept fighting them so it would have taken a little longer.
