*Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (R)
With Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, screenwriter Charlie Kaufman has created another ethereal portal of consciousness. Jim Carrey stars as Joel, a borderline depressive who falls in love with Clementine, a big talker with blue hair played manically by the ever-delightful Kate Winslet. Kaufman's characters inhabit an inner-focused world that rarely offers moments of clarity. But Eternal Sunshine transcends concept and technique through the wonderful, deeply human performances of Carrey and Winslet. The surprise of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is its uncompromising sentiment that, in love, flawed or not, a second chance is something worth fighting for. -- Kathryn Eastburn

*Super Size Me (NR)
While Super Size Me is overtly political, taking aim against the food industry in general and McDonald's in particular, it's also about something every American has: a relationship with: fast food. But more than its subject matter, there's a freak-show element to Morgan Spurlock's endeavor. Eating McDonald's for three square meals a day, not exercising, Spurlock, a 32-year-old New Yorker, sacrifices his gastrointestinal well-being for our own amusement. Those worshipping at the church of personal responsibility will maintain that Spurlock's approach is bogus and placing the blame for all our nutritional woes on McDonald's doorstep is as absurd as Spurlock's diet. But Super Size Me is not merely an indictment of one corporation, but an entire culture's obsession with "big." -- John Dicker
