Need A Good Cry? <i>Eternal Sunshine</i> Now Streaming On Hulu

Is there anyone on the planet who has not watched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and sobbed copious tears and thought, "If only it were possible to erase [fill in the blank] from my mind so I could move on and have an adult relationship and accomplish menial tasks like the folding of laundry or the washing of my hair"? Well if there is, that's about to change because Hulu posted the entire movie for streaming on their site today. [Thanks to Videogum for tipping us off.] Here, in no particular order, are five reasons (out of infinity) why EsotSM is the most brilliant and beautiful and heartbreaking movie in the history of the world, like, EVER. And this is NOT hyperbole you guys, at ALL.

1) Jim Carrey gives possibly the best performance of his career as the buttoned-up Joel. Seeing him in a role that doesn't make me want to smack the shit out of him is nothing short of miraculous. In fact, kudos times a hundred to Michel Gondry for managing to make actors I normally hate (Carrey, Kiki Drunkst, Elijah Wood) not just tolerable but likable.

2) Twisty and turny in all the right, emotionally resonant ways. (Pay attention, M. Night Shyamalan. This is how it's done.)

3) Mark Ruffalo's hot, naked ass.

4) The Jon Brion score and the brilliant Beck cover of the Korgis' "Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometimes."

5) Potatoes in dresses.
