This is the shorter of the two featurettes on the DVD of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, coming in at about 11 and a half minutes. It consists of interviews(with the main cast, the director and Anthony Bregman, one of the producers), clips of the movie and behind-the-scenes footage, all inter-cut nicely and with an air of enthusiasm that helps keep you watching throughout. The pacing is spot-on, you're never bored. You get introduced to the ideas of the film, Kaufmann's surrealism, Gondry's unique visual finger-print, and more. This doesn't contain that many or particularly big spoilers, so you can give this a chance even if you haven't watched the flick itself. They talk about story, concept, characters, effects, etc. It's quite concise and informative, you find out a lot in this short amount of time. The editing is marvelous, not overly static but without bringing excessive attention to itself. This doesn't really have any objectionable material, the strong language is censored, and anything else is not mentioned. I recommend this to anyone who wants to find out about the big-screen experience, whether or not you've already taken it in. 7/10
