Calling this film a masterpiece wouldn’t do justice to how beautifully it is made. Some scenes and dialogues in this film have been so powerful that they’ve individually stood out as masterpieces. I think this film in particular did not portray an intricate storyline or a plot, it portrayed emotions, which is why it is indubitably in my top ten films of all-time.
Jim Carrey’s acting in this film was just breathtaking. It was unreal to see Carrey, but not unexpected from someone as talented as him, to do this performance flawlessly. Backed up by Kate Winslet in the co-star role, this movie was certain to be a piece of art.
I will make more posts about this film in the future but for now, I’ll list down the 7 most magnificent snippets of dialogues from this film.
I could die right now, Clem. I’m just, happy. I’ve never felt that before. I’m just exactly where I want to be.

Constantly talking isn’t necessarily a conversation.
Clementine: This is it Joel, it’s going to be gone soon.
Joel: I know
Clementine: What do we do?
Joel: Enjoy it.

Why do I fall in love with every woman I see that shows me the least bit of attention?
