A surreal and challenging romantic fantasy that only seems to improve on itself with repeat viewings, Michel Gondry's Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind arrives on DVD with some fascinating and revealing extras courtesy of Universal. Presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen, the image sports a mild grain with vibrant colors and little evidence of digital artifacting or edge enhancement. The closed-captioned English Dolby Digital 5.1 audio mix is clean and even, and the disc also offers additional English and French Dolby Digital 5.1 mixes with optional French and Spanish subtitles. For those looking to unlock the many mysteries of the elliptical film, an audio commentary track with director Gondry and screenwriter Charlie Kaufman begins slowly but soon finds the creative pair following the film from first pitch to final frame. It's nice to hear Gondry discuss some of the impressive camera tricks he utilizes in the film, and it's obvious that he and Kaufman really connect creatively. A conversation with Jim Carrey and Gondry finds the pair working very harmoniously as well -- with the possible exception of one heated but ultimately benign exchange on set -- and it's great to hear the two discuss the believable backgrounds that they infused the characters with as well as their constant stride to create an original and creative feature. Even if the featurette entitled "A Look Inside Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" is little more than an extended commercial, it does offer some fun and revealing interviews with the cast and crew and truly gets the viewer excited to take another look at the decidedly complex film. While a handful of deleted scenes doesn't necessarily reveal anything new about the film, the scenes do provide a few quiet and hauntingly affecting moments that didn't make it into the final cut; fans of the film will no doubt be excited to have the opportunity to check them out. A semi-creepy Polyphonic Spree music video features footage from the film altered to have characters and inanimate objects from the film singing their tune "Light and Day," and a brief infomercial for Lacuna Inc. rounds out the features in a quirky and upbeat note.
