jim carrey and michel gondry tv show

Jim Carrey and Michel Gondry are meeting again, though not in Montauk.

The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind star and director are teaming up for a Showtime series titled Kidding, a half-hour comedy series about a former children’s TV personality who starts to slowly lose his sanity in the face of a disintegrating family life. It’s no trippy backwards love story, but it sounds like the two will be tapping into the existential dreamscape that made Eternal Sunshine such a revelation. Now, if only they could get Kate Winslet on board.

“Meet me in Montauk.” Anyone who loves Michael Gondry‘s magnificent Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind knows how important that single piece of dialogue is when it’s whispered into Jim Carrey‘s ear by Kate Winslet, and next month fans will have the opportunity to meet in Montauk themselves for an unbelievable, special screening of the film in honor of Focus Features’ 15th anniversary.

Alamo Drafthouse has announced “Meet Me in Montauk,” a celebration of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind featuring a screening of the film in Montauk, outdoors, on the beach, in bed.

It only took four and a half years, but /Film has finally, graciously given me the opportunity to introduce myself. Hi, I’m Angie Han.

Ethan Anderton's Favorite Movies

Hey there! We haven’t been properly introduced. I’m Ethan Anderton. Back in May, I joined the /Film crew as the Weekend Editor, and while some of you have gotten to know me and my film tastes over the past few months, I never got a chance to truly arrive here at the site like our new writers Jack Giroux and Jacob Hall.

Therefore, I figured I’d follow suit by delivering my own favorite films of all time. These are the movies that have stuck with me over the years, some more recently than others, and have defined and changed my life in a variety of ways. Read More »

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind visual effects

One of the best films of the new century is undoubtedly Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It’s an innovative, beautiful, mesmerizing, heartbreaking and simultaneously uplifting romance. The Charlie Kaufman scripted, Michel Gondry directed film is one of my five favorites of all time, and I’ve explored and read about every facet of the film.

But there might be some of you out there who haven’t dug as deep. That’s why I wanted to post this featurette that dives into the unique and quaint visual effects of the film. Michel Gondry is known for using some interesting practical production methods, but this featurette looks at the seamless digital visual effects that helped complete the film. There are some effects here that you probably didn’t even notice.

The Oscars inevitably bring a lot of grumbling about which films the Academy has overlooked. But if one of your favorites is among them, perhaps you can at least take heart in the fact that it’s in great company. The Oscars have a very long history of backing the wrong horse. Some of what we now view as unimpeachable classics weren’t even seen as Best Picture nomination-worthy at the time.

Hit the jump for a list of films never nominated for Best Picture.
