I can’t say much for the other films (since I’ve only seen them maybe once), but I sincerely disagree with the representation of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind in this. Clementine is definitely not a “muse” to Joel. In fact, despite Joel being the protagonist, Clementine as a character has been represented as a much more “full” and “complete” person. The whole plot of the movie is motivated by HER “troubles, interests and creative endeavours.” Just because it’s a love story involving a man and a woman does not mean she is what is referred to here as a ‘manic pixie dream girl.’ Has the person who composed this even watched that film? She lacks the exact ‘feminine’ qualities this thing is talking about - she’s not caregiving at all! Joel is much more ‘effeminate’ than she is - quiet, shy, introverted, frightened, fragile, overly-emotional (constantly scribbling in his journal), practically passive in every single way. Clementine is boisterous, rude, impulsive, decisive, and dominant. In our first meeting of the character we are confronted by her strong resentment of the word ‘nice’ ‘cause she thinks it’s bs and would never want to be called that. ESotSM should def not be included in this. And yeah, I’m a bit of a fan.
