I have been reading other webpages and such, and am curious as to how many people really get pissed or dissapointed at Charlie Kaufman's third acts in his movies..

I personally think all of his screenplays are brilliant.

But for those who do think that his films are jarring because of this, you will be happy to know that Eternal Sunshine, is not like the others in that aspect.  The ending is very well rounded with the entire piece.

"We're all one thing, Lieutenant. That's what I've come to realize. Like cells in a body. 'Cept we can't see the body. The way fish can't see the ocean. And so we envy each other. Hurt each other. Hate each other. How silly is that? A heart cell hating a lung cell"
