Eternal Sunshine

Something funny: I just printed off the script of Eternal Sunshine. This script was before the shooting script.
Charlie Kaufman originally started it off during the Christmas season, with an apologetic old woman walking into a office and asking a receptionist if a publisher (apparently someone she knew) was in. She has a manuscript in her hands. She feels that people need to read it. The man refuses to see her and she walks out. The name of the manuscript is "Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind."
She then walks into an above ground subway and sits in the next chair that zooms her way. She then shoots through the giant tubes which criss cross the city.

This gives me hope.

I liked reading this script. There's a ton of dialogue that didn't get put in the movie and it makes me feel better about my own tendencies to overwrite dialogue because hey, even Charlie Kauffman overwrites dialogue.
