Argh! Brain fart!

  1. Aug 15, 2004 #1
    Ok so I've been trying to think of this movie I saw back in April (around there) 2004 in theaters. It was pretty weird. That's all I remember about it, that it was weird. I'll do my best to remember some scenes, maybe someone will remember and be able to give me the title..

    It started out with this guy dating this really weird gal and she wanted him to stay over at her place on their first date or something.. then weird weird weird.. another scene late in the movie was them having an argument or something and the guy started tripiing out really bad. they were arguing at night on a street, and he watched her walk away in one direction, then turned around and it was like the camera mirror-flopped and she was suddenly walking away the other direction or something.

    Another memory i have of it was that the girl went and had her memory of him erased so then he did it too, and it was lke fate that they met back up again or something and started remembering their life together.. i guess it was all about some doctor that was able to erase memories or something. Apparently the movie was hypnotic and actually erased my memory of it. It's really weird how i can't remember a thing about it. I usually have a near-flawless, photographic memory, but this one movie seems like i was heavily drugged while watching (even though the drugs were not present that night ;) ).. any help would be appreciated.

    I just saw that once I posted this thread, the thread beneath it was "Memorization Tactics"... hmm

    Ha.. Just after i posted I went and grabbed some water, and while looking at the glass I thought to myself how spotless it was, then it was like a tidal wave of memory from the movie splashed into my mind and I remembered the title and the entire movie.. Thank you, however, for your post. I hate/love when that happens!

    What's it about? Hopefully better than Ad Infinitum's description...a guy dates a girl, then weird weird weird. LOL! That's not likely to attract a huge audience.

    I do that with movies too, remember a bunch of scenes, but can't recall the name of the movie, or have this vague recollection I saw it, but can't recall a thing about it (though I traced most of that back to seeing movies while on dates...one particular boyfriend too...I was just so infatuated with him that I think my attention wasn't exactly on the movies at the time...sigh).

    Hmm...sounds really good. I probably would have skipped over it with Jim Carey in it (I like his stuff, but have to be in the right mood to watch it or it just seems dumb), but from that description, it sounds pretty good. I'll have to check it out next time I'm renting movies.

    IMO, Jim Carey has effectively recast himself as a competent dramatic actor with this movie. There isn't any slapstick physical comedy in this movie at all, and Carey acts quite well, I think. I used to pretty much despise the guy before seeing The Truman Show, which I think was the beginning of his refocusing, but now I rather like him.
