Based on the following quote from an Alexander Pope poem:
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind !
Each pray’r accepted, and each wish resign’d.
When Joel is in his head and is visiting his session of the erasing process, no special effects were used to show the two Joels in the one scene. Jim Carrey had to take off his hat and jacket when he was not in shot and had to quickly sit down in the chair and visa-versa when he has to stand up.
Reporters tried to interview Jim Carrey as the unplanned scene with Joel and Clementine at the street parade was being filmed. If you listen closely, you can hear somebody shout “Speak to me!” at Jim Carrey.
In the credits there appears the line “Leksell Sterotactic System courtesy of Electra Intstruments”; this is bizarre-looking head gear for brain surgery.
Director Michel Gondry felt it was better to have Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet reacting to the children playing their characters as it happened.
