My memory is playing tricks on me. I suspect I haven't seen this film since it came out 10 years ago, and yet I immediately recalled watching a movie where a girl with blue hair is engaging with a guy on a bus or a train like in the above scene in the first few seconds of the movie.
Maybe it was Blue Valentine?
How strange and self referential. How annoying I can't remember.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is a very good movie premise if you can't remember what it's all about.
The deprogramming scenes go on a little too long (for me) but they're very much like LSD trips or at least like my LSD trips, where beginning, middle and end are hard to sequence.
