Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind poses many intriguing and important philosophical questions touching on themes of ethics, emotion, self-identity, and memory. In this talk, we will focus on how the film explores the relationship between memory, love and personal identity within the story and through its innovative visual style.
