Raven 1 Jose Raven Dr. Bajorek ENG 2102: Sec. 001 16 March 2019 “Meet Me in Montauk”: Editing Techniques for Representing Joel’s Subconscious in Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind (2004). Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind (2004), directed by Michel Gondry, presents a non- linear plot about a very characteristic love story between Joel Barish (Jim Carrey) and Clementine   Kruczynski (Kate Winslet). After both Joel and Clementine undergo a medical procedure to erase each other from their memories, they re-encounter themselves in Montauk, New York. Gondry presents the love story by comparing Joel’s reality with a simulation of Joel’s subconscious during his medical brain procedure alongside with all the memories about his relationship with Clementine, which is a very complicated scenario to represent. Michel Gondry employs distinct visual techniques in order to differentiate Joel’s subconscious from the reality for the audience.
