    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    What a loss to spend that much time with someone, only to find out she’s a stranger.

    That couldn’t have been said any better.

    Im going through the motions of parting ways with someone I’ve spent the better part of a year with.

Yorgos Lanthimos is at the top of his game here and I just need to enunciate how amazing and entertaining this was. All the accolades this has gotten…
