Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Charlie Kaufman is a genius. And I liked all of the cool Michel Gondry style things such as the main guy walking out of Barnes and Noble and straight into the house where he was telling the story.
There were a few plot holes. When people get their memory erased they apparently don't remember the Lacuna company, but at one point the receptionist is talking to someone on the phone and says you can't get the operation done 3 times in one month. Even though this is a pretty funny line, it doesn't really make sense that they would tell people they had had the procedure done before. Also, I didn't understand how the girl in his memory was able to tell him to meet her on the beach in Montauk.
