so i just watched this yesterday and i thought the message of the film was that some relationships aren't meant to last and that that's okay and the whole film is showing how these people are not meant for each other long-term. the ending is this juxtaposed thing where joel is so hurt and broken and lost that he's willing to put himself through anything for the comfort of clementine, even though everything she says about how it's just gonna keep falling apart is true.
SANDY thinks that they're "destined" to be together and they'll keep finding each other cos they're in love. i think this is bullshit and that she is missing the entire point of the film and is basically a real-life joel.
WHO IS RIGHT? AM I PESSIMISTIC? IS SHE AN IDIOT?
