Why, thank you. :-)

Well, for one thing, the conversations Alex and Kate had. They were constantly interrupting each other's sentences and the like, which wouldn't have really worked if they were writing letters to each others, unless they were sitting there watching each other's words appear magically one-by-one, which, I don't think they were doing. But for some reason, the McCartney song was bugging me more than anything else, and they kind of made it worse by playing the song over the end credits. Pretty song, though.

I guess he just put it there, and assumed that she would find it in such an obscure place, and that her current boyfriend would be too dense to bother looking in the floorboards. But, I don't know for sure. Ultimately, while a part of me wished that Spike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman had taken the material and run it off in an "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"/"Being John Malkovich" direction, I can understand why that didn't happen... too much of the time travel topsy-turviness might distract too much from the sentiment, and ultimately, the movie is all about romance, with time separation as an interesting springboard.

Back at ya later
